This step in the guide focuses on the Advanced Settings of the iThemes SecurityWP Plugin.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On the Advanced Settings page, you can override the admin users, change the content directory (to ensure that it doesn’t set hacked when using the easy-to-find wp-content default directory) and the database prefix (usually “wp” but you can change it with this option).

If you choose to make your own directories and prefix’s, make sure that you backup your files first. You could end up losing everything, so get in the habit of protecting yourself first, before you make changes.
