Support » Fixing WordPress » Had Malware – Now nothing works

  • Resolved reachground



    WordPress is such a joy to work with. I find it the best tool for my site. Unfortunately I’ve had malware. I think it was TimThumb that did it. I tried everything in my power to fix it but nothing worked. My host eventually took me offline. That’s when I got tired of it and just deleted everything on the site. I did backup my database though and hoped that I could reinstall everything replacing all the images and be done with it.
    So was not the case.

    What I’ve done now is:

    1. Removed every table from the database.
    2. Installed WordPress from scratch
    3. Uploaded the theme
    4. Imported the old database

    The startpage works as expected, everything looks the same except the images are gone. The problem is that none of the posts or pages turn up. I guess the reason is that I deleted the files. The thing I tried was to create new pages and posts. I could then preview a post before it was posted, but when I published it I got the “The requested URL […] was not found on this server”.

    If you want to see it you can go to the site:

    You will get a warning message which you can ignore if you trust me (random guy on the Internetz), everything is clean.
