  • Make Database how it SHOULD have been?

    Hey there,
    hope this is the right forum.

    After feeling the wrath of a bad hack, I'm wanting to put the database BACK to what vB should have.

    eg. I want to say "Hey, Mr. MySQL - see this database, look through it and when there's stuff ADDED since vB... get rid of that crap... now.. please"??!?!

    Cheers guys.

    You mean you want the database restored to what it was before the hack, right?

    Do you have a backup of the database? (also known as an SQL dump) If you don't have a backup of the database, you will need to ask your host and see if they have a backup from the date you need.

    If you do have a backup, then follow step 3 on this page (If you don't understand, get your host to help you out with it)

      See, the problem is that the hack has been in for a while, and there's been thousands of posts since then.... this is sort of what my majore problem is....

        OK, I thought you meant you got hacked as in someone took over your board and messed it up. vBulletin modifications (aka code hacks) are supported at now. You'll have to go over there to get info on how to uninstall hacks; they could probably explain it better than me anyway.
