In June 2014 the whole website (Jacobs Tree and my personal area) has again been hacked (I’m afraid I don’t understand why people would want to do this.)
Many thanks to those people who alerted me to this – unfortunately I don’t look at it every day, or even every week.
Unfortunately my backup wasn’t thorough enough to be able to quickly rebuild.
Therefore I decided to go back to basics.
I purchased a new hosting package with a different company (TSOHOST). This new account features an automatic daily backup which backs up both the site and the databases.
I have also built in security checks so that I get notified more quickly if the site is hacked again.
At the same time I upgraded the version of Joomla that I use for the front end and bought an updated version of TNG, the software used to manage the family tree.
Unfortunately all this has taken time, something which I don’t have a lot of at present.
I don’t believe that I have lost any data from the old system, it’s just taken a long time to re-assemble it.
