All In One Security – Dashboard

Video Tutorial

Script & Screenshots

In this video I’m going to take you through the All In One Security Dashboard.

To get to it, click on WP Security, then Dashboard.

In the dashboard page you will find a security strength meter gauge. The purpose of this gauge is to keep you informed of how secure your site is based on how many of the available security features you have activated on your site.  It displays the Total Achievable Points (maximum points) vs. the Current Score of your site.

The Security Points Breakdown option shows your overall percentage of the different levels of security currently activated.  I don’t have much enabled yet, so there’s only 3 items showing up for me.  As I enable more items, these will increase.
The dashboard will also highlight the most important features which you should apply to your site to achieve a minimal acceptable level of security. These are displayed in this panel.  It also shows whether they are currently active or not.  If they are off, you can click on it and it will take you to where you can enable it.
This option displays the User, Date and IP address of the last 5 logins, newest to oldest.  I just installed this plugin, so it’s not showing anyone has logged into this website yet.
The Maintenance Mode Status option allows you to put your site into Maintenance Mode.  This will lock down the front-end to all visitors except the users logged in with admin privileges.  To enable it, click the On button.  This will take you to a page where you can enable the front end Lockout screen.  You can also enter a message that you’d like displayed to anyone visiting your site while it is in Maintenance Mode. When you’d like to take it out of maintenance mode, click on it again to turn it back off.
The Logged in Users box displays all users that are currently logged in.  If no one is logged in, you’ll see a message just like you see here.
If you find that your site is being attacked, you can lock out the IP Address.
On the system info tab, it shows the complete details of your WordPress installation, PHP versions and active plugins detail.
The Locked IP Addresses tab displays a list of IP addresses that are currently temporarily blocked from too many failed login attempts.  If one of your clients or employees are locked out, you can unlock them here.
Here is the Permanently Blocked List tab.  If an IP address has been blocked, it will appear here.  If you blocked them by mistake, you can unblock them here.
On the AIOWPS Log tab, you can view the security log files of the plugin here.  Select the log file, then click the View Logs button.

Since I recently installed this plugin, I don’t have any day in my log files.  Once you have data, it will show up here.

That’s it for this video.  I’ll see you in the next one.
