    Whats the error message you are getting ?

    Sounds like a simple password problem, if you've recently updated your password try the old one, if not, get the system to reset your password using the lost password function.

    If your database was on the hosts server, the chances are the hacker corrupted that one too, once they are into your C-panel they have access to all your files and all your databases including backups, that what it sounds like to me.

    I've had this happen to me, my only way out was to start again from scratch, if you are lucky, Google may have cached some of your content, so gettign some back could be a simple copy/paste exercise.

    Believe me, I know how you feel, I had two years work hacked, and destroyed.

    i know it's no help now but in future download backups to your own PC.

    If your database has been corrupted there is not a lot anyone can do.
    First tell us which board software you are using, if it's phpBB you can gain access by using the STK toolkit.

    you can make new register ??

    if can just go to config.php
    and edit the administrator user id and put the new id on config.php

    after then try to reset your first admin id by default id = 1

    after reset

    open another browser then try login the old admin user
    if login complete

    go to config.php again change back id to old

    then login back

    if you have any query just pm me,,,,

    That wont work for a number of reasons.

    That is the database password which could be different from his ACP password.

    He's logging into the database so that password is working and does not need changing.

    If he lets us know what board software he is using then we may be able to help further.

    this is beginning to sound as if the password file in the database has been corrupted or deleted, you need to ask VB if there is a way of building it again, and if there is a way of you resetting the Admin password, not sure but it could mean all your present members have to re-register, try asking on the VB forum at Vbulletin.com

    Just found this on the net, VB does have a tool for reseetting the admin password, this is for version 3.x,

    The following guideline will help you to reset your vBulletin administrator in an event when “Forgot password” doesn’t work for you: [1] Browse your forum and log out (if you have logged in using other user) if you aren’t already. Register as a new user and login as this user. [2] In the vBulletin’s .zip file you can find a directory called ‘do_not_upload/‘. Inside this directory, there is a file called ‘tools.php‘. Upload this file into your forum’s admincp/ directory. Then go to the admincp/tools.php with your browser. [3] At the bottom of the tools page is an option to ‘Reset Admin Access‘. Run it with the just newly registered username. [4] You have just made yourself admin and you need this because you should now login to the admincp/ and find the user who’s password you have lost. Search for this user and when found you will see the whole profile including a password field. Set a new password. [6] Go to the main forum and log out from the new user, and try to login with the old admin account. This should work now. [7] When it works, go back into the admin control panel and find the newly registered user. The profile page will have a drop down in the top, from there select delete and delete the temporary admin. [8] Then delete the tools.php file from your web hosting account. It is a potential security risk if you leave it on the web site.
