Support » Fixing WordPress » My blog site has been wiped out!

  • Hey guys, I hope you are all right. Can you help me out or just clarify something that happened to me two days ago?
    Basically,I went on my website and instead has appeared the wordpress installation page. I did the same on my website page admin and has appeared again the installation wordpress page. I didn’t do nothing about url address or database changes. 7 months of work wiped out like that.
    A friend of mine host me the blog and he tall me that there are no files present in the directory. I don’t have a backup of the blog. He tall me that it could be a malfunctioned or outdated plugin. I do have an outdated plugin for ADS but I couldn’t imagine a such a problem.
    Is possible that just an outdated plugin could erase an entire website? Could I been hacked?

    Please, let me know

    Please don’t post in the Alpha/Beta forum unless you’re actually testing the alpha/beta version of WordPress (not a plugin or a theme). Also, once WordPress has released a version, it’s not appropriate to post in alpha/beta and you should post in the How To & Troublshooting forum:

    It’s unlikely that a plugin would delete everything. And hackers usually want a to leave behind a functional site to spread their malware. So, that leaves you and your friend.

    I see a login when I got to /wp-admin, so then there *must* be WordPress files there. Ask your friend to verify that the database is still there. If so, all your site content is preserved. You may just need to fix the database links in wp-config.php.

    Thank you very much for the suggestions Steve Stern and I am really sorry to post my question in the wrong forum Ipstenu.

    I wish you both a lovely day
