  • vB index page showing the database!

    I am using vBulletin v. 2.3.0 and on php 4 and mysql 4 on an unix server. The last time I changed any file (sesshions.php) was a week ago.

    I backed up my database via Cpanel backup system today about two hours ago. After I backed it up, I tried to visit my forum using the subdomain ( which gave me a page not found page.

    Then I tried and it was showing the whole database on the page! I mean anyone could go there and get the database.....THE WHOLE DATABASE.

    I talked to my host, and they said everything is fine from their side, and he suggested to reinstall vB. But my board is heavily hacked, and I am on my vacation right now, so its nearly impossible for me to do it.

    Can anyone help me out here? thanks.

    Edit: I just noticed this, when I rename any folder to "forums" (no matter if its the vB folder or one with just one simple index page), I get a download menu that says file can not be found.....

    The files are missing and/or the DNS has not propagated yet. What's the IP address?
