I have been doing web pages since 1986. I first started out using only a simple text editor such as NotePad on a Windows IBM PC machine. Computer experience with IBM or IBM compatible pc's, Macs, Linux, DG/Unix, Apple IIe and a Pet. I started using computers in the early 1970's.
If I am not 'at work' on a computer then I am working on my computer at home. Or working outdoors on our mini hobby farm, or working on one of my many gardens. Of course there are a horde of many other activities such as those related to Family, Church or community.
At work I help people fix their websites, recommend ways to improve website SEO rankings. Fix hacked or broken websites to some degree. I don't clean the site completely as this is not part of my job description. However I do find the hack(s) and identify php weakness. Once a site has been cleaned. Security measures can be put into place to help prevent future hacks. Even with the best security in place it is still possible to get hacked but you greatly reduce the risk of a hack by keeping your PHP scripts up to date.
Best prevention against getting 'Hacked'. UPDATE and BACKUP. If your php website is out of date you are then at risk of getting hacked. If you don't backup your website then your run the risk of not being able to restore a working website.
