I cannot access my Joomla back end
This involved modifying a Joomla user in the database on a Joomla 3 site via phpMyAdmin to obtain access, removing a firewall component, several unused extensions, along with several Super Users, performing a security audit, updating the Joomla version and all extensions, and adding extra security to the site.
Fast, Excellent work.
