HELP! I need some assistance in finishing the recovery of a hacked website. If you’d like to view, it is at
Recently, my site was hacked by some *&^!*&^% from China. I have removed their crap and have been struggling with the restoration. (I found out the hard way that my web host has less than effective restore tools, unless you want to pay for the service.) I have the main page back up and the dashboard appears fully functional, but I still have a major problem.
EVERY link on the main page (to other pages on my site) is broken. I click on any link and I get something like this example:
The requested URL /2012/03/arrl-dx-ssb-contest-2012-and-the-new-80-meter-loop/ was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Except that the URL is different for each link, this error happens for every link – “more…” links in posts, page links in the menu at the top of the page, archives, etc. The only links that do work are to other sites.
I am reasonably sure that the database is correctly backed up and the content is intact because I can go in through the dashboard and edit any page. When I do this, all the content appears to be present and correct, including photos.
I have also reinstalled the latest version of WP via the dashboard.
In short, the content appears to be all there, but something is broken that is preventing all but the home page to appear. I suspect it is something simple but I am out of ideas on what it might be.
Any ideas or suggestions ?????
