    I have been using this tool on my sites for years so when i started building a new site for a new company I thought it would make sense. NO!!!
    This tool in a matter of seconds deleted my wp-config.php file's content and then screwing up my whole database. I had about 10 hours of work into this site as of now. I AM SO PISSED!!!!! Just don't use it, I have not looked but i am sure there are better applications that are smart enough not to delete the content of the wp-config.php file!!! I now have hours of work to fix the damage of this file. Oh and i did "backup" using the iThemes's security backup tool before i did anything, the only problem is that, it did not work. It did not tell me that no backup was created, but nothing was!
