    If you have a database backup, use that to restore your board.

    If you don't, contact your host and see if he has a backup. If so, ask him to restore the database with that backup.

    Please don't contact me per PM.

          What version are you running? If you are running an older insecure version then that could explain why you were hacked. Always run the latest version or be sure to apply security patches.

          You can't know the exact cause without examining your server logs.

            http://www.naijaworld.com you are redirected to another page

            but when you go to

            http://www.naijaworld.com/forum.php

            You are able to log in to the site but the problem is you cannot login and see the homepage which is adv_portal

              Honestly it sounds like your web account was compromised. Fill out a support ticket at:

              http://members.vbulletin.com/members...ontactform.php

              Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP. Please also include a complete description of the problem and we'll try to do what we can to fix the problem.

                  If you are running 3.0.7 AND you downloaded this before March 18 2005, then there is only one patch:

                    go to vbadvanced.com and download the fix for the shoutbox module. Over 18 forums were hit overnight.

                        I offered to help in post #7. However if you have hacks installed, then the first thing you need to do is reupload the original vB files.

                            Did you reupload the original vB files? Also since it appears your web account was hacked, I recommend you contact your web host and ask them to investigate this. You should also have them change your account password.
