Joomla Vs. WordPress

I would say that Joomla was my first love. It was my first venture into really creating websites, it was amazing. I remember staying home with my newborn son, and learning Joomla while I was taking care of him. He slept a lot of the time so I was able to get quite a bit of learning in. I worked with Joomla for many years after that, and I still love working with Joomla. At some point It was necessary for me to learn WordPress, to keep myself in charge



The importance of backing up your website.

It takes time to build a website, if you site goes down due to hacking or a bad plugin, it’s critical to have a complete backup.

Otherwise the only option may be a complete rebuild.

It’s preferable to have the backup stored offline so it can’t be accessed by anyone else. It’s easy enough to upload it and unpack it if needed.

If you are using Joomla than Akeeba Backup is the best choice in my opinion and experience.

If you are a WordPress user than Duplicator is in my opinion, the best choice.




Securi Security

Securi Security is a must have for your website security. I use this myself and have been alerted to security issues as they arouse.

Sucuri discovered that more than 100,000 WordPress sites have been hit with the SoakSoak malware campaign. This campaign has resulted in more than 11,000 domains being blacklisted by Google.

This discovery helped me out before it became a problem.
