I Woke up this morning to find that my forum had been hacked. Not only hacked, but someone deleted everything, all users and posts, 270,000+ posts and over 10,000 users.
I Have a backup of the forum (although its old
) but i am having problems trying to restore, cos of its size. (over 400MB).
I have no experience with SSH but i thought i would try it anyway. So i uploaded my SQL File and used SSH and put in:
mysqldump -u username -p --opt databasename > backupfilename.sql
Pressed return, put in my password and nothing happened. (obviously i changed the 'username' and 'databasename' to my own.)
I dont think i did the SSH properly, if anyone can help me with it, or suggest another way then please help
