Forum locked me out in both admin and moderator ID

My hosts server crashed yesterday and when they brought it back, now I cannot log on at all. Password resets don't work. I am using V 2.3.1

Suggestions?

Now my membership  is listed as ex member and some others who probably logged on have too.

I noticed that the Settings.php file was date stamped yesterday but I didn't make any so I renamed it and renamed the Settings_back.php and was allowed to enter but my membership is still messed up. No avatar etc.
Was the forum hacked?

I renamed the Yabb.pl file to take the forum off line in the meantime.

This usually caused by the Forum "Start Date/Time" being incorrect ....

I was able to restore most of the membership. Thanks!

The problem was a server that was full because of another user who decided to upload more than the allotment.

I have several members that have had their profiles zeroed out and I can't change their start date and they don't have email addresses anymore. The changes in Admin Edit don't stay.

Hi

I didn't see what version you are on, but YaBB versions 2.4 or 2.5AE include a built-in server-based YaBB backup, that you can store on your server and/or download.

do you mean the changes you have attempted on the users with zero-byte files, or ALL users????

Good Luck

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

  If you don't have a Backup of the yabb2/Members folder, you'll have to rebuild (manually) any members files that are zero'd.
