[split] Please help with database

Post by Jammerm » Sun Feb 19, 2017 3:28 am

Would there be any way for me to do this if the site was set up by someone else? Our site has been down for a week and I can't get in touch with the owner. I don't know if he hasn't paid the bill or what's happened. I've sent 2 messages to the operations link in the "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page and have not heard back. I was made a Mod and the owner kind of disappeared. I'm not even sure what version we have.

The forum is FoundDreanming and we get an "Error 404 Not found" message. What can we do?

without access to the ftp and the database, there is nothing you can do at all.

it looks like there are no phpbb files or any other files there at all.

If it doesn't expire for another month, why is it down now?
So, if I can't get a hold of the owner, or he's passed away or something, then I can't open the site up again and all our post and info are lost??

Something like that. Or you can wait until the domain will expire and you can purchase it again.
But i'm afraid you have to rebuild your website again.
I know is illegal to share content from a server as a hosting provider. At least in my country is. Good luck!

But that will be several months after it has expired

I got in contact with the site owner and he is going to see if it can be brought back. He said someone hacked into his server and deleted a couple of his forums. I don't know if this is an isolated problem or if others have had this happen.
Thank you for you help.
