A few weeks ago, Chris Jean posted this in-depth blog post covering the recent WordPress security attacks. In his post, Chis outlined several ways to protect your site, so we created these 5 new tutorial videos covering everything from how to manually install WordPress to how to update your wp-config.php keys — all ways to help keep your WordPress site safe.

Check out the rest of our free WordPress tutorials over on the iThemes Tutorials hub. From WordPress 101 to advanced Builder CSS, we’ve got you covered with nearly 70 WordPress tutorial videos (and many more to come!).
