Description

In this course, you will learn a few simple security measures you can take to protect your WordPress site from attackers. 

WordPress is awesome at keeping malicious threats at bay, but you want to take a few extra precautions to make sure your site will stand up to any attack. 

An attack can also come from within...by mistake. 

A number of things could cause your entire Wordpress site to go down. You could have installed a plugin that conflicted with some other code on your site, or a custom css line could have caused your site to be unattainable. 

I'll show you how to backup your site so you'll always have a copy that you can restore from. 

You put a lot of hard work into your site. Keep your WordPress site safe by using the methods taught in this course to safeguard it against attacks and code errors.
