This morning I woke to a hacker message instead of my website. Apparently this hacker is one of the world’s best and has even hacked Google’s servers. That may be impressive but it still did me little good. “Rebuilding” was the word of the day. So here’s my message to anyone who has a website:

MAKE SURE YOU DO A BACKUP OF YOUR FILES AND DATABASE!

It’s easy to do and if I did not have backups of everything I would have probably never rebuilt the site (it took months to do it the first time). But when I was building my site I remember everybody warning me to back up my files. I listened and had backups to help make this rebuilding day something possible instead of impossible.

In life I tend to listen to ‘experienced’ people before those with just ‘information.’ … Yesterday I was someone with ‘information’ about backing up your files. Today I became an ‘experienced’ person. Trust me. Back up your stuff … Now! … You might thank me one day.
