Site Maintance

If you had trouble logging in at any point today, it was because I was installing a fresh copy of WordPress to my hosting server. Apparently, some earlier versions of WordPress were vulnerable to malware injections, which in turn would  infect anyone visiting the site. I was running the most current version, however, the WordPress upgrade program leaves some old files intact, which may leave the site vulnerable in spite of the version. My site was not infected, I am certain because I downloaded the entire contents of my site and ran a virus/malware scans on everything and nothing was found.  So, I then backup up the database, I deleted the WordPress install, downloaded a fresh copy and installed it. Then I downloaded and reinstalled all the plugins and my theme, restored the database and that was that. Took about an hour start to finish.
