How a plugin almost destroyed her business. Beware!
A friend of mine got her blog almost completely shattered. We've worked hard to get it back to order. And furtunately, we succeeded.
She got to the plugin repository of WordPress and filled her blog with free plugins. In the process, she got a 'backdoor' plugin.
A backdoor is a malicious piece of code that is used to provide the attacker with unauthorized remote access to a compromised web space by exploiting security vulnerabilitie
Such infections are generally difficult to handle. Most often, restoring a backup copy of your blog cannot solve the problem.
Sometimes, it requires special skills to manually deal with a backdoor infection. Most WordPress Security Apps out there can't even handle it.
Plugins are good but ...
The trainings offered here have recommended plugins I believe should drive your blog successfully.
But if you feel you need an additional plugin, if you are not really sure about it, I think it's a good thing to ask first.
Most starters are quick to install a plugin that does this or that. Do you really need that next plugin? Is it adding any value to your business?
We are here to help. We are building together. Don't do it alone especially if you are new.
Ask before you install.
Let's keep giving.
