Project details

The hard-to-match history of working with Joomla from the beginning of the project and the accumulated massive amount of knowledge is just one click away.
I will clean your hacked Joomla from malware and recover whenever is possible to the initial stage*, harden and secure down. I will update all add-ons and set up an early notification system for the upcoming hacking attempts and other security-related incidents. I will continuously monitor the secured site, will keep the Joomla core and all installed components up to date, and in the unlikely situation when despite the above efforts, a security incident will occur, I will clean up and fully restore the site in less, than 24 hours.

The offer also includes consulting on security-related problems.

The offer does not include upgrading the Joomla core between major versions (like 2.5 to 3.9.*) and commercial components for which the site owner does not hold a valid license.

* In some cases, the full recovery of the site, which has not been correctly set up and maintained, might not be possible. In these cases, I will notify the client promptly and propose solutions for the given situation.

Fell in love with IT in the fall of 1980 as a student. I left my physics engineering (more precisely Nuclear Fuel Engineering - MSc in 1985) career for computing, obtained my MSc degree in computing in 1989, since working as programmer, sysadmin, IT expert.

Currently I'm a proud member of two Joomla core teams - the Extension Directory Team and Community Translators Team - , over years I had 30+ extensions listed in the official Joomla repository and have more, than 10.000 forum entries in various Joomla forums. The newest service I offer for my Joomla clients is developing complex custom components for them.

WordPress is also part of my portfolio, embraced this capable CMS for more, than 15 years ago, and also have a great numbers of sites built with that, and even more sites I provided various services for, like tweaks, fixes, hosting and security services..

Website security is part of my daily life since I started working on the web, along with website hosting. I am running my small hosting company - aimed exclusively for my clients I am building sites for, and I offer complex website security packages from one-off cleanups, pay-as-you-go security services and various prepaid security and maintenance packages. currently I have in my care (security wise) 50+ Joomla and WordPress sites and have in my security portfolio hundreds of other sites I provided development/maintenance and security services for.

Specialties: Website Security, website development, maintenance, audit optimization for major CMS-es (Joomla, Mambo, WordPress), Malware removal, site security services, site audits and upgrades, Joomla custom component creation, SEO, HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, web authoring, script install, personalization, translation between Hungarian/Romanian/English/French, multilingual sites development, IT consulting, customer support.
