Hi experts,

What is the best Firewall plugin, or Security Plugin which works on IIS Servers. I tried "Better WP Security" but it works only on Apache servers...

Thank in advance.

Hello,

From my point of view, the best security for any Wordpress website is setting 0 permission for writing for all directories and files that doesn't require that.

Second, depends on the target of your website (regional / country / international). If you target only people in your country you can limit that using htaccess.

On the plugin side I recommend Bulletproof Security.

All the best.

Thank you for your answer.

Ive tried BolletProof. I got the following message;

WARNING! BPS has detected that your Server is a Windows IIS Server that does not support .htaccess rewriting. Do NOT activate BulletProof Security Modes unless you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing. Your Server Type is: Microsoft-IIS/7.0

Moreover, there is no option "Security Options", which makes me thinking that is not full functioning under IIS Server.

Many security plugins use Apaches htaccess feature. Installing Helicon Ape from Helicontech provides htaccess on IIS too.

Because it is an application that needs to be installed on the server this must be provided by your ISP. If you run a Vserver you can install it yourself. If you run WordPress and PHP driven sites only my recommendation would be to switch from Windows/IIS to Linux/Apache.

Thank you very much. My ISP hosting is IIS not Apache; Moving to other ISP is not an option for me. Anyway, thank you for your answer.
