New Server, New Control Panel

My hosting company just switched my hosting setup to a new server running the Plesk control panel. It’s taken me a while to reconfigure the site and get it running again, in part because I’ve been dealing with a hack that started on the old server. We think the vulnerability was in the file permissions, which allowed the hackers to insert executable files, then execute them via web requests. I’m hoping it’s all fixed now – I’ve locked down the file and folder permissions, and the site seems to be working.
