I learned the hard way about WordPress Security and WordPress Backups. I have had this WordPress blog for a good while, but someone hacked the site and destroyed it. It is time to start over. This time I am going to add more Security and Backups. Yes, I did not have good Security or good Backups.
Another thing is that the blog will be moved to a hosting site so I can use PHP 7.0 for better WordPress Security.
