But given things are out of your control to some degree it's difficult to know. In unusual weather v...

Re: Site going down.

It sounds like more a php injection vulnerability than linux itself being hacked. php CMS's are plagued with security holes and by only updating them when updates are released can you try to secure a site. Steve, on that note you would be advised to update phpBB. your running a version that needs up...

I have also emailed Hetzner requesting they take a more supportive roll in this issue and help steve, rather than pull the plug on him.

Re: Site going down.

I'm curious as to why the email functionality on the site can't just be disabled, and that the hosting company want to terminate the hosting service?
