What is the best firewall plugin that I can use for my forum which is free as well?

Ninja Firewall in full WAF mode.

It won't crash my forum, right? Because I recently installed the all-in-one security plugin and it caused my whole forum to crash and database errors.

@vasudevsoni2001 Nope, it won't. Just be sure you activate full WAF after installation.

Full WAF mode, prepends the script BEFORE Wordpress.

So follow the guide displayed.

And never trust ANY "all-in-one" plugins.
