I'm looking to get guidance and solicit a contractor.
Here's the situation:
My friend and I hired a developer to build a site to help christian missionary ESL teachers some years ago. The developer built the site in XOOPS 2.0.14 and it hasn't been maintained in a few years.
Here's the problem:
The site is overrun with SPAM user registerations and the database is BLOATED with users and old comments and forum posts. I've tried to hide and turn off features.
My buddy and I are no longer active in the community of ESL teacher, but we still believe in the mission of the site. So we want to update it and keep it online, without all the spam and security holes.
Here is an eLance job project with more details https://www.elance.com/job/27194339/proposals
Here's how you can help:
What is your suggestion to 'clean' or update a XOOPS site?
What 'routine maintenance' do you do to your sites?
Can you recommend a developer to do the work?
Please contact me here or thru the site.
Thanks for your guidance and help,
PS:I apologize if this is the wrong place to post.
