Joomla!® Security and Support Experts

Please note that our documentation is being reviewed due to the release of DMC Firewall for WordPress. The following documentation was written for Joomla! so some of the information will not apply to DMC Firewall for WordPress.

Getting Started with DMC Firewall

Getting started with DMC Firewall is simple, all you need to do is install it. From the moment that you install DMC Firewall - it starts providing additional security to your Joomla powered website. Within this guide we will show you all of the steps that you will need to take in order to have DMC Firewall protecting your website. We will show you the basics from installing DMC Firewall all the way through to putting DMC Firewall into 'Test Mode' and allowing what we class as 'Bad Bots' to crawl your website.
