copying content when CMS outdated/insecure, site quarantined

InMotionFans 3 years ago in Blogs and Content Management Systems / Joomla 0
My Joomla-based site has been quarantined. How can I get access (read, copy, download in readable form) to the content through File Manager or otherwise?
Hello,

Thank you for your question on gaining access to quarantined files. The quarantine folder is above your public_html folder and should allow you access it. Keep in mind these files were quarantined because they were hacked so reinstating them will get them re-quarantined and the account possibly suspended. You will want to replace them with clean files from the same version of Joomla that you are running.

As for content like pages, that data is in the database and will still be ready to display once your core files are replaced.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
