All In One Security – Settings
Script & Screenshots
Here is where you can manage the .htaccess file, wp-config.php file, WP Meta Info and Import/Export.
Click on WP Security, then Settings.
The .htaccess file is a key component of your website’s security and it can be modified to implement various levels of protection. It is important to keep a back-up copy!
Click the Backup .htaccess file button to make a back-up copy of the file in case you need to use the original file in the future. It should save the file to your downloads folder. I suggest moving it to another location on your hard drive where it’s easy to find. Also a good idea to make a backup copy to a cloud or on an external drive.
The next tab is the wp-config.php File tab. The wp-config file is one of the most important files of your website. It has all the configuration information that allows your website to connect to the database and other critical components.
The first box allows you to backup this file. Click the Backup wp-config.php File button to make a back-up copy of the wp-config.php file in case you need to use the original file in the future. Be sure to save it where you can find it later and also make a backup copy if you can.
To import the settings into your site, click the Select Your Import Settings Files button and browse to the exported file. Or you can copy and paste the contents of the file into the box below.
Note: If a setting relies on the current domain URL then it may not work correctly when imported into a different domain. You many need to make adjustments to the file prior to importing.
That’s it for this video. I’ll see you in the next one.
