Strengthen your Joomla! Site security – Have you ever thought about?

Hacking and bugs are always the best problems to be worry about when you own a website. This is the reason why you must pay attention to protect your Joomla site and improve its security. Today, some tips will be given out to help you feel safe with you Joomla site.

Manage Jooma and extensions updated

It is a strong advice that you should update your site with the latest version of Joomla as soon as possible. When a new version is released, many bugs will be fixed and many security configurations will be added. The longer you hesitate to update Joomla, the more chance of being hacked will you receive.

And do the same with Joomla extensions!

Use strong login details

Remember that you must not use passwords like admin, admin123, 123456 … and so on if you want to keep your Joomla site safe. A strong password concludes:

  • No less than 8 characters in the length
  • No username, real name, school name or company name
  • A mixture of uppercase, lowercase characters and numbers

There are many free tools which generate strong passwords on the internet so find one and keep your account safe. Then change it regularly!

Often do backup your site

Files and database from your site should be backed up frequently in case you Joomla site is pulled into trouble. You can back up your site manually or use available Joomla extensions.

Remove unused Joomla extensions

You may install many extensions to your site, test them and forget them. Not only make your site slower, this will bring you many troubles that you may ignore. Now, check all of the extension and keep only important ones left then see how better your site works.

Make your Administrative page a secret

It is also a good idea when you hide your admin configuration area from the potential hackers by using a secret URL to access the backend. If you protect your administrator folder, one more password will be required to lead you to the standard login form. If you use a dynamic IP address, you will have to edit the .htaccess file everytime your IP changes.

They are some tips we would like to suggest you to prevent your Joomla site form hackers and bad things so on. Of course, there are still many other ways for you to choose.
