Restoring a Hacked WP Site With Wordfence and FTP
Watch as I clean a WordPress site containing malicious files.
This website uses Wordfence Security, so I used the scanner feature to clean out some of these malicious files.
To complete cleaning the server, I used Filezilla FTP to remove the rest of the malware from various folders and sub-folders on the server.
I also go through the process of checking your WP Users accounts and your Cpanel FTP accounts for unauthorized accounts.
In addition, I show you corrupted .htaccess and wp-config.php files.
Because of its popularity, it is also attracting hackers.
That’s why it is imperative that you continuously maintain your WordPress site.
That includes saving copies of your backup.
