Installation Notes

1. First things first. Before you do anything please make a backup of your WordPress database and your WordPress site. This is just a safety precaution and I do not expect anything to go wrong but just in case, it will help with recovery if something does happen. I back up my WordPress site whenever I want to add a plugin or upgrade to the latest version of WordPress and whenever I publish a new post. So backing up is something I advice everyone to do.


2. If your WordPress site has any Security Plugins installed then deactivate them.


3. Install the helper plugin and read the docs: dpaBadBotWP WordPress plugin. This WordPress Plugin is very important especially if your site is a multiuser site. It passes information to the Bad Bot Exterminator about the status of the WordPress website and that is why it is very important to install it in your WordPress site. This plugin can be installed by downloading the plugin to your PC and uploading to your website or by login into the WordPress Control Panel (Dashboard), going to add plugins menu and search for 'dpabadbotwp' plugin.




4. Install the SuperFast Cache WordPress plugin. If you do not want to install the SuperFast Cache or you want to install it at a later date, you can skip this section for now. This plugin is not stored in the WordPress repository. You can download it from this website. Then upload the SuperFast Cache plugin .zip file to your website in the .../wp-content/plugins/ sub directory and unzip it. Then log back into you WordPress Controll panel and activate the plugin. Please read the SuperFast Cache installation & setup documentation





5. Having installed the WordPress plugins, you can now install the Bad Bot Exterminator. All you need to do is to download the .zip file, which was emailed to you, to your PC and then uploaded it into your website. For example if your domain name is http:// www.mydomain.com, then upload the zip file to your server. Mostly likely you would have placed in the root directory, eg http:/ /www.mydomain.com

6. Unzip the zip file. It will automatically make a subdirectory http:// www.mydomain.com /dpabadbot/


7. Execute the program by entering the following URL into you web browser

http:// www.mydomain.com /dpabadbot/


8. If you get a directory listing when you try to run the program, please log into your website server control panel and look into http:// www.mydomain.com /dpabadbot/ directory - the "/dpabadbot/" sub-directory. You will find in this subdirectory a file named "htaccess.txt". Copy this file to ".htaccess" into the same sub-directory. And the program should be able to run.



9. If you get the error message

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /dpabadbot/ on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Security WP Plugins

As hacking of WordPress and other sites has become a major problem on the internet, many WordPress security plugins try to detect changes to wp-login.php and index.php. This is the wrong approach as if these files were modified it could mean that someone has already hacked and damaged your WordPress site. If you can, disable checking if wp-login.php and index.php were modified or disable the plugin, because the Bad Bot Exterminator modifies these files and keeps a copy of them safely somewhere else. The Bad Bot Exterminator introduces its own version of wp-login.php and index.php to monitor visitors and block hackers and badbots before they can enter WordPress.

It is for this reason we are very sure nobody can log into your WordPress site once it is LOCKED. And we know that this makes it very difficult for hackers to attack your WordPress site.


Upgrading from an earlier version of the Bad Bot Exterminator

If you are upgrading from an earleir version of the Bad Bot Exterminator do UNLOCK and STOP TRACKING Visitors before installing the latest version. That is :-

i. UNLOCK and STOP TRACKING visitors in the Bad Bot Exterminator version that you are currently using.
