Oh No!

This... is... bad...

Well. That was interesting. Monkeychicken has gone down. Just about all of it. The importance of this?

Monkeychicken is my friend's website. It was also where I was hosting:
-ShroomChat
-The school recycling forum

It was where many others were hosting:
-The Monkeychicken Forum
-Their blogs
-Monkeychicken Strategy Game

And someone just hacked in, changed all the access data, and wiped just about everything. Most was not backed up. Very bad.

To me it looks like the subdomain got erased. Maybe talk to your friend about this.

Nah, its not that, as some of the pages are still there, but otherwise some folders have just been wiped, as not all of this was on subdomains...

In fact, everything has been wiped that was in a sub-folder.

My friend is speaking to the hosting company. But all of us at Monkeychicken are pretty annoyed about all this. And what am I supposed to tell the Recycling Committee...?

Yep, back up always. I've learned this the hard way many times.

Three nights worth of work, deleted. I was ticked.

Well, all my files were backed up. But not the SQL - the phpmyadmin was all messed up from the start. Although I don't think anything else was...

A happy ending at last...

Hosting said that a server error caused everything to be wiped, and they are now restoring the files using the back-ups they took. All for a free... *for a fee, a fee!* £10!!!

Still, the files will be back. Which is all good.
