    P.s. If you db is big, then it is best to restore it through another method, like bigdump.php, mysqldumper etc. Because hostsphpmyadmin has file size limits.

    You will see a large input box for queries and below that you will see a smaller box labeled Browse.

    If I were you I would use the most recent one. if they are done at the same time, I would go woith the one made from your host.

    How to restore the database, have a look at the online manual:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html

    If the ways mentioned there won''t work, then try bigdump.php and/or mysqldumper. (Google them both)

    Do you have a recent backup of your db from before you got hacked? If you are not sure, ask your host about it. If you do, restore it. There are several articles at the online manual on the subject. You might want to have a look there. Also, there are quite a lot of posts/threads on the matter so you might want to search the forums as well. Hope it helps

    I feel it may also be worth mentioning that another forum in our "network" so to speak (shared members), got hacked by an arabic group as well (different one) about a week before us, which kinda sucks.
    As for userid, it is 1. I ran that query and it's done nothing, except say:


    Which really baffles me.

    Has anyone got any other ideas? Or have I missed something?
    In that case maybe it would be best to revert to your most recent backup from before of the hack.

    0 row(s) deleted. ( Query took 0.0003 sec )

    Edit: Got it to work, slight change needed. However it achieved nada :/
    Apparently I'm still banned.
    What is your userid? If it is not 1 then you should enter the right uid at the query. It works fine. I have used it on several occasions without a problem. or register a new account at your forum and then make that an admin at the phpmyadmin.

    Hi, PM me your phpmyadmin details and I will help unban you provided the database has not been corrupted. If it doesn't work you need to do as birdie suggested.

    This is true, thanks, however for the time being, if I can get it fixed this way, save cash, and learn in the process, I figure it'll be more beneficial for me.
    Thanks though.

    Any chance anyone has any other ideas?
