Nice work.

@Gemma. I like what you have done with your site it looks good. It scans clean so this is great.

Re the proxy " Hide My ass" It seems there are certain "patches" that can defeat it.

I know of a scam website that recommends it, as THEY can read through it.

Nice work in getting back up and running and with a very nice looking website.

Taken a few weeks longer to get finished because we moved to a new server and I had a few loose ends with my health. But all is good now

It won't be everyone's cup of tea but our members seem to like it and that's what counts for us.
ah man this is really sad to hear. I enjoyed your site and the time I did post there for awhile. I know you worked hard on it.

You have, unfortunately, learned the hard way, ALWAYs have backups of everything (off-site).
I know this is an old thread but it got me to thinking, what would I do if this happened to my site.

Is there a thread or a manual on doing a proper backup "off-site"?

I feel that any decent hosting company should have weekly, if not daily, full backups of the site to restore. I also make an effort to download a full site & db backup each month, and before/after any major site updates.

Takes 3 minutes to save countless hours (days... months... years...) of work.

It would be nice if the hosting company did it, but don't just count on them. You, the admin, should be making sure to take a daily backup. See these links on backups and restoring.

From the manual:
Backing Up The Database via SSH/Telnet or
Backing Up The Database via phpMyAdmin

Restoring The Database via SSH/Telnet or
Restoring The Database via phpMyAdmin

If you don't have shell access, some people have also reported success with these scripts:
MySQLDumper
MySQLHotxcopy
Bigdump

I like MySQLDumper because it's quick to backup and restore. I always make a backup using phpMyAdmin (or whatever the hosting manager software allows) and MySQLDumper since phpMyAdmin does not make "100% backups 100% of the time" try more like "100% backups 99% of the time" .

I would find a host who offers backups, some have hourly backups and some daily... some cost you $$$ to add that onto your "hosting package" and others don't charge anything extra.

My site got hacked yesterday.

The Hosting provider (webhostinghub.com) said it's a vB issue.

The symptom was that nobody could log in, not even Admin (myself) but the site was readable.

Why on Earth vB can not provide a function such as "restartable copy of site" that can download a snapshot of the site to a local PC?

Now I am going through the hoops and people running their sites by free software , not vB, could be laughing at me and our entire community.

Why is hacking so easy with vB? No tools on my site, all by the book.

You should really start your own thread if you're asking for support.

Any website can get hacked, even free ones.

Restored (still in process) from backups but with nothing changed nor improved, the hackers can walk in at any time again.

They do, if your site was readable then all you had to do was upload tools.php, repair your access and you're back in!

If you have all the latest patches, no extra add-ons...etc and it's a bog standard forum then it's either a very insecure admin password thats been discovered or they've accessed your server by poor ftp password, insecure folder permissions or if your on a shared server via some other vulnerability on the server maybe via another user.
