How To Fix Malware Infected WordPress Website?
How to fix malware infected wordpress website? Looking for advice from WordPress Security Experts. I have found some malware in my WP-content folder. As well my site has been throwing 503 errors. I’ve deactivated plugins to test, everything is up to date, still no improvement. Also talked to my hosting provider. I have removed three malware files. I suspect the two things are related. I’m thinking the easiest solution, is to move my site onto another empty hosting account I have for wordpress that has not been activated yet. Wondering if I am at risk of bringing the data/content over? Or do I need to rebuild manually? I am on a shared hosting, which I know isn’t the greatest. Using OCEANWP, THRIVE ARCHITECT and LEARNDASH. Thank you for your advice! Trying not to spend a pile of cash fixing this.
I was thinking if the 503 errors were not related to the malware then it is a host issue. I’m with GODADDY. I have looked at sucuri plans…just have trouble with the $200 price as I am not making an income yet (I’m in Canada and that is closer to $270). I did have security plugin on my site. Reverting maybe a possibility, does that revert the core too? I have been actively building a course so would lose a lot of that work, but may be better than rebuilding everything.
