Serious Joomla Vulnerability found but we’ve got you Covered!

security

It is mid-summer now but security issues take no vacation. Actually they find the most inappropriate time to appear and make our lives more interesting, to say the least. On Thursday, 25 July the Joomla! Project announced the availability of Joomla 3.1.4/2.5.13 and many users upgraded their websites because the new releases provide tons of useful new features and bug fixes. One will think: job well done, it is time to hit the beach! But… On Thursday, 01 August, the Joomla! Project surprisingly  announced the immediate availability of Joomla! 3.1.5/2.5.14. Apparently not much time to sip exotic summer cocktails was allowed. The reason for this extremely short period between the two versions was that a critical level security issue was discovered just after the previous release and it had the potential to affect all Joomla! CMS versions. Yes, that’s correct  – we are talking about all the Joomla! sites out there. All versions are affected – 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3. Sounds scary, right? Not if you’re hosted on SiteGround servers!

WP-CLI now coming preinstalled on all SiteGround Servers!

WP-Cli

We’re excited to announce that a new WordPress tool has been added to our servers. WordPress users who love command line will be happy to find WP-CLI pre-installed on all SiteGround accounts.

WP-CLI allows you to do multiple things like updating your WordPress, installing themes and plugins, setting up multiple sites, etc., and all that without using a web browser. To take advantage of the tool you don’t need to install anything yourself. Simply login to your account via SSH, navigate to the folder of your WordPress installation and start typing management commands – it’s that simple!

To learn how to use WP-CLI you can refer to our WP-CLI tutorial. Additionally, you can find a full list of WP-CLI commands on their official website.

SSH can be easily enabled for all SiteGround accounts through your cPanel. For detailed instructions refer to the following tutorial: How to enable SSH for your account.

Our rebranded website got the grounds moving and already generated quite a lot of traction and positive feedback. Thank you all! It’s reported that it even made some people cry. :)

Peter Bui, host of the super cool Joomlabe.at podcast, didn’t cry, but got super excited about the redesign and invited us again to share some insights behind the redesign. Lily – our very own marketing master and visionary of the rebranding project reveals why we chose the handcrafted idea and leaves some pretty cool marketing and rebranding takeaways. Check out the episode and make sure to listen to the very end – you might win some SG swag too!

Do you think we did good communicating the handcrafted philosophy? Throw your comments below.
