Approx. read time : 2 min

If you think that there are any issues with your osCommerce website security, then you can perform a security check by following the steps mentioned below:

  1. Check if there are any .php files present in the images directory. osCommerce does not store any .php files in the images directory.
  2. Check if there are any suspicious admin users on your website. For this, login through your osCommerce admin account and go to the option – ‘Administrators’ in the ‘Configuration’ menu, there should be only one administrator.
  3. Download all your website files and scan them through an antivirus software, this will help you to find malicious or corrupted files if any.

Although it might take some time to carry out the above mentioned steps, it is worth it. You can also seek professional help along with executing the steps mentioned above. Sign up for MilesWeb osCommerce hosting for ensuring a secure osCommerce website.
