    How often should we change the passwords? Can you recommend me a software that creates backups for both files and database?

      I believe that you should update your passwords every 3 months.

      As Zen said earlyer, 3 months is a great period of time to reset your passwords. Also please use passwords with at least 8 characters length, that contain letters, numbers and also special characters.
