PrestaShop v1.6.0.14 still secure?


Recommended Posts

PrestaShop v1.6.0.14 still secure? I have installed Security Patch Module Version1.0.2 (08/04/2015), but my hosting company want to take down my website because patching has stopped 08/04/2015.


I cannot upgrade to new version because of many special changes. Can I prove somehow that PrestaShop v1.6.0.14 is secure? Is it?


Or is there a way to upgrade to PrestaShop v1.6.1.10 without all my changes getting lost? One-Click upgrade changes too many files.

Well, I think that Your hosting provider is just mad because Prestashop is overall pretty much secure and non-spamming software but there is one issue - It needs a lot of resources and it is CPU consumming so if Your hosting is based od shared hosting that Your provider will send You this kind of message because Your account is taking to much server resources like HDD space, CPU and RAM usage. Prestashop has also a tons of small files which is not good for old HDD. You have to speak with them what is causing direct danger to safety of their infrastructure and they have to send the logs with pointed situation that is causing harmfull stuff.
