Old forum hacked a while ago. Possible to restore?

Post by Alpure on December 22nd 2013, 5:09 am

Good day!

A few years ago I ran an online gaming team, which resided on a forumotion board (www.v7x-clan.forumotion.net), that's all we really needed to keep in touch and organize things. Apart from me, there was a Co-Leader, who also had access to the administration panel.

When time passed and the team began to fall off, there was a disagreement between me and the Co-Leader. One day he hacked the page, somehow closed access to the boards, possibly removed all the contents from it, set its language to Mongolian so one can't understand a thing when he enters the page.

Back then it was unpleasant, but no big deal. Now, after approx. 4 years I visited the page again, and I saw it still was there. So I came up with a thought, that maybe it's still possible to restore the whole content. I have no idea how to log in, I have no idea how to change the language to English instead of Mongolian there, but the content on the page is valuable for me (some bright and fun memories of mine and of my friends).

I know it's my fault I gave access to the administration panel to another person. Still I really want to save the situation. I really hope the support team of forumotion will be willing/able to help. I'd be even ready to pay (in limited amount, as I'm just a student).


Looking forward to hearing from you soon
Kind regards
Alpure

Thanks a lot for your quick reply, I will try to contact him now.

P.S. But what if I don't remember the e-mail address I used to register the boards? Since I've got quite a few e-mails, it could be one of them. But which exactly - not sure.

Hello,

I responded to your PM, I already sent you a new password to the creation e-mail. Now, once you got it, you should try to perform a back up on your forum via the utilities to restore it to a certain date:

You can ask for more questions regarding this issue. Smile
