The first step of the guide to the Acunetix WordPress Security plugin will take a look at the process of installing the plugin onto your website.

Step 1) Head to your Dashboard and scroll down the left-hand sidebar until you get to ‘Plugins’.


Step 2) From the dropdown, click on ‘Add New’ to be taken to the ‘Add Plugins’ page.


Step 3) In the search box in the top-right hand corner, type in the name of the plugin and press ‘Enter’


Step 4) Scroll down the ‘Search Results’ page until you find the plugin you’re looking for, and click ‘Install Now’. If you would like to learn more about the plugin before you install it, click the blue link underneath, marked ‘More Details’


Step 5) On the final page, your plugin will be unpacked and installed. All you have to do now is click the blue linked marked ‘Activate Plugin’ to do just that.


Step 6) This will finalise the process and re-direct you to the ‘Installed Plugins’ page, where you can read up on the plugin, and it is also where you will find the settings for the Acunetix WP Security plugin.


Step 7) On the left-hand sidebar of your Dashboard, scroll down to ‘WP Security’. You will see a range of options available, and we will take you through them throughout the rest of the guide. For starters though, click on ‘About’ and learn more about the plugin, including what it does, how it will help your site, and use the ‘Get Involved’ box on the right to read their blog and follow their Twitter and Facebook pages. There is also a support section which includes FAQs and a way to get in touch with any issues you have.
