WordPress managment. Edit login URL
WordPress management is great but my security plugin lets me change the login URL from the WordPress default. Either Plesk needs to get the correct URL from the database or let the user edit the login URL

The best thing to do here is using one of the modsecurity rules and/or connect WordPress to fail2ban. Changing your login url doesn't really help security and can make security worse for when modsecurity is already protecting you for brute force attacks.
Any updates about this? This feature would be really useful!
Hi, the plugin is iThemes Security previously known as Better WP Security. https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-wp-security/ Downloaded 600,000+times it says. An extremely comprehensive security solution. It has over 30 different ways to secure WordPress websites. It could be some of these are now covered by Plesk. Apart from the login URL another change recommended is the renaming of the wp-content folder to something else. The WP scan picked this change up ok on my existing sites but a change after registration in Plesk has caused it to fall off the list of domains and a rescan has not reinstated it. Thanks
