Restoration of an manipulated site

Install your sites, using an own backup

  • Upload your files on your server (SFTP/SSH) and import the database in your Hostpoint Control Panel, register Databases
  • Login in the backend of your website and change all passwords of all backend-users, delete unknown or inactive users
  • Change the password of the database-user
  • Deinstall all not used themes/plugins
  • Install and activate a firewall

Important: Please do not use any file from the folder ''Hostpoint Quarantined Files" except pictures (.jpg, .png, .gif aso.).

An anti-virus will find hidden backdoors only conditionally. If you use a CMS, you can install anti-mailware plugins, but please notice that those wont be able to find all bad scripts/backdoors. If you use files from this folder, its quite likely that will you get hacked again.

Please delete the folder ''Hostpoint Quarantined Files".
