We experiece alot of occasions lately that ppl are trying to crack a wordpress “admin” login. to post spam or something on a wordpress blog. Change the standard username / password if u wanna be safe and dont wanna have a hosting company complain at u. We have been experiencing a higher load then useual on our shared servers lately.
If someone wont respond then we take action and use one of the following samples:
Create a .htaccess file or edit it, and put in the following:
AuthName “Private access”
Generate a .passwd file on the desired location:
htpasswd -c /home/vhosts/kwomkwommr.nl/www/.htpasswd username
I know, i havent done anything like that yet, i dont care till i will be spammed till a load of 10, and then ill see if i use this or use any of the following options on the WordPress FAQ
