How to keep my Joomla! site safe

With CMS sites like Joomla! or WordPress or Drupal, it’s important that you take security seriously. Here are some ‘best practice’ suggestions for your Joomla! site:

  • Keep your Joomla! installation updated
  • Keep your Joomla! extensions updated
  • Before installing extensions on your site, check the Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED) for ratings and user comments
  • Check the Joomla! Vulnerable Extensions List

Most importantly, maintain good backups of your site files and database.

 Please see our Joomla! support docs for more details on all of these topics.
