Project Description

Assistance needed updating our old Joomla template (originally modified from a template called MT_Business) to Joomla 1.5.7.

Our website was recently hacked and during re-installation we accidentally chose jos_ prefix for the MySQL database so content in the old mos_ prefix tables are not available. Some of the old SQL content also seems not compatible with Joomla 1.5.7 (indicated with error messages when we set the prefix to mos_ in site settings in Joomla). We need the old menus and articles accessible in the Joomla 1.5.7 environment.

We also need specific advice on how to prevent future hacking of the site (which crucial files must have which access settings etc), and to install a reliable Joomla extension that makes automatic website backups.

This should be a days' work for a person who knows his/her stuff, so project offered at fixed rate of USD200. If successful collaboration, good opportunities for some follow-up work since the whole website is going to be re-designed with added functionality soon.

Our template to be upgraded as well as the necessary site administration /FTP / MySQL access authorisations will be provided per email to the successful applicant.
