Having your Joomla site running fine is great, but as with any data it is important to have backups. The same applies to Joomla based web sites.

Your host should have a backup option in place, maybe 14 days of archived daily backups. However this is often inadequate and your should have an additional backup option.

Akeeba provide an excellent alternative including a free version.

The following should be considered with any backup solution.

  • Automate backups regularly to off site storage.
  • Run manual backup prior to a site change for example 3rd party addon or upgrade
  • Run backup once again once site changes have been made
  • Manual backups to be copied off site

If you have JCE joomla editor as one of your editors in your Joomla installation it is critical you update it to the latest version. As a number of sites recently hacked were due to the JCE component of Joomla Version being vulnerable to Remote File Upload. This has been rectified in later versions above 1.5.7.

Joomla 1.5 is no longer supported by Joomla org so there are no longer any security patches provided by Joomla, and they recommend as we do that sites are upgraded asap.

However a critical security issue has been found for which a member of the Joomla community have provided an easy installable patch for, this can be downloaded and installed from here.
