Acunetix Security plugin is another comprehensive security tool that will secure your WordPress membership site with its features for:
- securing file permissions,
- security of the database,
- version hiding,
- WordPress admin protection and lots more.
Install the plugin from your WordPress Dashboard -> Plugins -> Add New -> Search for Acunetix WP Security.
Find the WP Security dashboard and open the Database section. Before making any change with this plugin, we recommend to Backup your database.
Take a look below if your database prefix is the standard wp_. If it is, we recommend to change it to something else. Click on Start Renaming.
Once your database is backed up and set with the right hard-to-guess prefix, open the Settings section.
From here check ALL features and click on Update Settings.
Now open WP Info. If there are some recommended fixes, click on Apply suggested permissions.
From WP File Scan you can scan for modified files, if you suspect someone is changing something on your site without your knowledge.
That’s it. Now your WordPress site is nicely secured.
