I have an Ubuntu server which is running Nginx and have a Wordpress site. I need good protection for it. Recently I found that BFD is causing some problems so I had to disable it. Does any one know of a better solution?

regardless of the log-parser - make sure your logs are small - eg rotated daily.
There's always OSSEC too. It's very configurable.
