Remember to update and backup your website

By 14th May 2015 No Comments

Always remember to update and always remember to backup. It takes a little time and might cost a little money but it’s well worth it. I’ve just spent the last two days repairing a hacked website. When this happens, malicious files can be uploaded and it’s no good just finding and deleting those files because apart from being very well disguised they can infect your ‘good’ files and create back doors which are left open so they can re-enter anytime they like. These are even harder to find and close. The problem is sorted now but it’s so much quicker and cheaper if you regularly update and keep backups. Get your designer to do it for you if it’s a bother.
