So while trying to setup custom permalinks on a new Wordpress install today, I discovered that Nginx doens’t use .htaccess and as a result requires some configuration changes to support custom permalinks.
That now has me wondering, what other plugins rely on .htaccess and may not work by default on Nginx? In particlular I’m concerned about security plugins.
I’m currently using Wordfence. Can anyone recommend a security plugin that works correctly on Nginx? Or confirm if Wordfence already will?
