    Hello,

    May you share how to secure the server, VPS or wordpress installation?

    May you share with links?

    Is it worth to use proxy in the front or cloudfront?
    What are your experience and recommendations?

    May you share your knowledge? I will be happy to read and learn more.

    Thank you!!

    If you install Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 or newer with centmin.sh menu option 22 based wordpress installer, then you'll start with a very secure Wordpress installation out of the box compared to you trying to manually install wordpress yourself. See https://community.centminmod.com/th...l-vs-centmin-sh-menu-option-22-install.15435/

    As to security out of box Centmin Mod is already very secure, some threads in forum https://community.centminmod.com/forums/system-administration.39/ discuss security so you can do a title search in that thread for security topics i.e. https://community.centminmod.com/threads/question-how-to-secure-a-cmm-install.14673/

    Also your welcome reply has links to security related topics at https://community.centminmod.com/threads/hello.16580/#post-70685
