How can we fix & troubleshoot WordPress Security Related Errors. Recovering from Cyber attacks may cost you huge amount of money so, what are the possible issues related to security and how to fix them.November 25, 2022 at 12:24 pm #233Kate HeestersParticipant
It is wise to use WordPress security best practices to your website. Cyberattacks may result in significant damage that costs a lot of money to repair. Regrettably, occasionally the safeguards you put in place for your website can result in mistakes.
Here are some tips to secure your website from CyberAttacks:
Technically, you are implementing HSTS on the web server, and HTTP queries to your WordPress website then benefit from this. A 301 redirect is typically added when switching from HTTP to HTTPS. Google has explicitly stated that the HSTS header and both 301 server redirection are compatible.
Although our systems automatically favor the HTTPS version, you can additionally make this more obvious to other search engines by rerouting traffic from your HTTP site to its HTTPS counterpart and by adding the HSTS header to your server.
- Enable HSTS in Apache
The virtual hosts file should now include the following code.
“Header always set Strict-Transport-Security max-age=31536000”
- Enable HSTS in NGINX
Add the following code to your NGINX config.
“add_header Strict-Transport-Security “max-age=31536000”;”
The last thing a website owner wants is for their WordPress website to experience difficulties or become inaccessible to users.Do you have any inquiries concerning fixing issues with your WordPress website?

As you suggested both the versions HTTPS & HSTS to prevent websites from cyber attacks. Can you suggest to me which one is more preferable & secured from both of these?December 29, 2022 at 2:07 pm #581Cyrus TheosParticipant
HSTS stands for HTTP Strict Transport Security, whereas HTTPS stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. When you have HSTS support, it is not possible to use 301 redirects before the site has been loaded via HTTP. Since the site must load HTTPS in order to function, there is no time for any hackers to sneak in and utilize it using HTTP.
HSTS adds an additional degree of protection to your site by allowing it to load exclusively under HTTPS. This security layer informs the browser that the site is protected by HTTPS and that it is not necessary to attempt to load it in HTTP. By doing this, the hackers’ little window of opportunity during the 301 redirects will be closed.
This means that there is no time for any hackers to slip in and use it with HTTP and prevent the site from loading HTTPS. HSTS allows the site to load only & HTTPS provides an extra layer of security for your site which means HTTPS is more secure than HSTS.
