Do you have any articles or Education Channels that show how a new Joomla administrator can keep a new site secure? I've built my site, but before I go live with it, I'd like to know what to do to keep out the bad guys. I've heard that it's very important to do, but I need some instructions that make sense. Thanks:-)

Hello Jampff,

Thanks for the question!

Unfortunately, we don't really have a Joomla-specific article for securing your website. The one that we have is more general: Website Security. This article does include links for securing Joomla websites, but it's not very specific.

There's a better article on this issue here: How Secure is your Joomla Website?. Also, check this one out: Securing your Joomla website. Although, I don't agree with his hosting site suggestions. The rest of the article (skip the video screen) is pretty good in that it lists some decent suggestions for securing your Joomla website.

I hope that helps to provide you some direction in securing your Joomla website! If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

Arnel C.
