Security Change for PWP Siteowners

As scheduled in the July 2016 news post:

Starting on August 15th 2016, all PWP websites will require an on-campus connection through the VPN service for any admin user off campus.

  • Any user administering their website on campus will see no change.
  • Any user administering their website off campus must use the Georgia Tech VPN service to access PWP administrative pages.

We realize this means site administrators will require the extra step of connecting to the VPN, but the frequency of successful WordPress exploits and site defacements convinces us that restricting administrative access is a necessary step.

This change is now in place for all PWP websites.
