then if you are convinced you have been hacked you might want to file a report with the IIT - http://www.phpbb.com/support/incidents/index.php and get help investigating and hopefully fixing this problem.



did you have any other admin on the board who might have demoted you to moderator and taken over your board, as this would not be a hack but just someone you trusted betraying you?

You can unban yourself using phpMyAdmin if you have it.

Does your webhost have a control panel? If so, you should have a link to phpMyAdmin in most cases. It can be downloaded from here: http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/index.php
