Enable DISSALLOW_FILE_EDIT in WordPress

To further harden your WordPress site from unwanted changes, it can be important to enable a setting to help prevent modification of your plugin and theme files.

  1. You should always backup your site before making any changes.
  2. Log in to WordPress.
  3. Go to Sucuri Security > Settings.
  4. Click on the Hardening tab.
  5. Find the section labled Plugin and Theme Editor.
  6. If the section is red, click on the Apply Hardening button.

You have now prevented your WordPress plugin and theme files from being edited as easily by malicious code.
