Therefore, we have joined other major web hosting providers by advising all our clients who use WordPress to install an additional plugin 'Limit Login Attempts' that will help to prevent brute force attacks.

We have it build in. Thanks Ryan.

      Hello,
      I have a Processwire website (www.example.com)
      I want to have a wordpress/woocommerce section of the website at (www.example.com/marketplace/)
      Is there any way this can be done?
       
      Apart from this, I am planning to have a universal login system for both the systems. The logins will be verifies inside of PW and an API will be used to transfer login data to wordpress. Now, in this scenario, how the user sessions can be managed and continued? Is cookies a viable/secure option?

      There is a site https://carnesmechanical.com/ on the WordPress CMS engine on the server, you need to transfer it to Processwire to another server. About 1000 pages. Write how much you are ready to undertake?

      First I am a PW student I think it's the best PHP Framework.  So please don't get me wrong when I asked when other Frameworks like the big 3 (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal) are too complicated to use or maintain (I tried them all) why are people still using them? PW is just too elegant in comparison even for a newbie like me.
