WordPress Security: Do not use the default database prefix

Solution

One of the most important things we recommend, regarding WordPress security, is using a different table prefix. By default WordPress uses wp_. If you change this to something like x3sdf_ it will make it much harder to guess by an intruder.

 

If you install WordPress via Softaculous, ensure to expand the Advanced Options section and use a table prefix different to the default "wp_" one.

 



 

If you install WordPress manually, change the table prefix field to something different to "wp_"
