Hacked… but Back!

Aye carumba! The site was down for less than 24 hours, but it was so unexpected and mysterious that it had me quite worried! It all started with an email I received that cryptically stated the following: Password Lost and Changed for user: admin. So I immediately tried to log in and… no such luck. I got my password changed and immediately upgraded to the newest version of WordPress. When I tried to verify the success of my upgrade, I suddenly couldn’t connect to the database and then all the pages listed under my user name at the hosting company were out of commission. We figured that out and got everything working again, but the database was still vanished. Thankfully, Jerry speaks Techie, so he contacted the hosting company and it was all restored! I’ll spare you the rest of the boring details, but I’m so relieved that everything’s up and running again!

Now, before I get hacked again or just lose everything out of pure bad luck, I’m going to back up the whole damn site!

While I’m doing that, why don’t you let me know what your favorite contact management system is… and what you think is the most *secure*.
