    Hacked (deleted all files)


    My site was hacked today and all the files where deleted

    Good thing is that database is O.K., what's the best way to put VB forum back online? I'm guessing I can't just upload a fresh installation, maybe I should install it locally and then upload files and change username and pass for connecting to database?

    You don't need to install it anywhere, just upload the files and edit the config.php to point to your database.
