Sorry if this is a repeat post; I couldn't find anything that helped with this problem, but if there has already been one, feel free to just point me in the right direction.
My site was hacked sometime last night or this morning by the worm. The file it attacked was not my index.php, but rather config.php. I deleted the corrupt file as you all had said, and upgraded to version 2.0.11, but obviously I goofed it up, because there is still a problem. It says it cannot access the database because the password listed in config.php (the one I uploaded after deleting the corrupt one) is incorrect.
When I installed PHPBB the first time, it simply assigned the database a random password, and now I'm not sure how to access it.
My question is: is there any way I can access the database password so that I can check the one in config.php?
My other question is, if I completely fouled it up beyond repair, is there any way I can create a new database and transfer all of my old members and messages to it?
Thank you so much for your help, and I'm sorry if I posted a repeat question or posted in the wrong thread.
