What is WordPress?

WordPress has been the staple content management system (CMS) platform for eCommerce, blogs, and social or news platforms ‒ among others. Because of its popularity, developers are continuously developing it for stability and productivity.

On the other hand, it has also caught the eyes of many online hackers. Even the smallest vulnerability in the code may be used as a backdoor to let hackers get their hands on sensitive and essential information. Hence, if you are using WordPress for running your website, keeping it safe from hackers is a necessity.

Moreover, you might have a feeling that something is off with your webpage. If your WordPress security plugin raises alerts of hacked or infected files, then you can almost conclude that your website has been hacked. Besides, knowing that someone hacked your website may leave you terrified. But now’s not the time to panic. Instead, think about installing a security scanner and a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client before anything else. A few more steps will help you recover your webpage and make it live as soon as possible.

Have Backups

Before you first publish your web page online, you should prepare for any potential attack and security flaws. Regardless of whether it runs on WordPress or another content management system, having an instant countermeasure when something goes wrong should be a priority. You can do this by keeping a regular and updated backup of your website. This includes saving its database, system files, and other content. So that when your site gets compromised, you can restore a clean version from a backup drive and quickly get your web page up and running.

Moreover, failing to keep a backup of your entire web page can only make the recovery process all the more difficult. Without a clean copy, you’ll have to soldier through the installation as a whole and look for potential malware, delete it, and hope that you’ve fixed the problem.

But there’s also another option: relying on your web host. Some web hosting services offer a clean backup of your website to help you out of miserable hacking situations. However, it is best to take matters into your own hands and have a backup hard drive ready. Putting your trust in other services against hackers is not a sustainable and efficient plan of action.

Keep an eye out on changed files

The job is not quite done after you’ve managed to upload a backup and restore your web page. Keeping an eye on your files and figuring out exactly what happened is a crucial step to patching any weak points.

Besides, your backup files may look clean ‒ but without fixing the security flaws, you are only leaving your web page vulnerable to another attack.  So if you can, try to grab a copy of the hacked website or take a look at the latest backup and run it through a security scanner tool. Site security checkers will help you find leads that could point towards flaws and issues within your web page. Hence, after grabbing a copy of the infected site, it’s time to search for clues.
