What you will learn in this Webinar

Backup and restore

We are going to discuss how to properly back up your WordPress site. We will also go over details about all the possible scenarios to cloning a WordPress website, or just save the stuff you will need in order to restore it should your site get compromised.

Scan your Website and identify

So, you suspect or you fully know your site has been compromised. What should you do? We are going to go over steps to pin-point exactly what went wrong and the scenarios that follow in order to make proper decisions.


We will discuss how to change your users, passwords, usernames and update your database in order to be fully secure.


Once the site is backed up, we will tidy things further by changing file permissions and controlling who sees what using adjustments in HTACCESS.

Lock things down

Last but not least, we are going to lock things down on both the database and WordPress dashboard in order to make it even harder for hackers to snoop around your stuff. We will discuss how to change your users, passwords, usernames and update your database in order to be fully secure.
