Site disappeared

  • I had a site named DonJohnsonBooks.com that seems to have disappeared. When I try to log in, I get this” Cannot open this site because it has received too many redirects from 3rd parties yadayada.” Don’t understand because this site is seldom used, much less over-used. No record of it here in my profile. Another site I had was still listed although it had been hacked and completely ruined beyond repair and it supposed to be deleted.
    I wonder if they (WP) removed the good site and left the bad one here. Although that one can’t be accessed, either. HELP!

    DonJohnsonBooks.com shows 301 Moved Permanently as well as Redirect loop detected (max_redirect = 7).

    Perhaps contacting your host will help. BTW, which hosting company is hosting your site?

    The webpage at http://donjohnsonbooks.com/home/doemjo/public_html_addons/donjohnsonbooks.com/htttp://reltime2012.ru/frunleh?9 has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

    Cleared the cookies; tried another server. I know the site is there because it flashes up for a second before it’s covered by the “too many redirects.” message. Can’t get anybody at WordPress to deal with this.

    Can’t get anybody at WordPress to deal with this.

    The link quoted by you above and the site have been moved permanently as this report shows.

    Please have a look at the report. So, please contact your host and find out what is happening.

    OK, I read it. The site worked perfectly until it just stopped. I have no clue as to what Mozilla is talking about – as I suspect is true of 99% of the population. Thanks for you help, but it still doesn’t open.

    The document was successfully checked as HTML 2.0. This means that the resource in question identified itself as “HTML 2.0” and that we successfully performed a formal validation of it. The parser implementations we used for this check are based on OpenSP (SGML/XML).

    Still won’t open. Pardon me if I’m a little crabby, but I’ve been trying to deal with this for the better part of 2 days. Worse, I can’t even get into WordPress to start another site.

    Also go through this Google thread. It is about the same hacking Russian site that you quoted as part of your URL.

    Edit: A plain reading of the above thread shows that your site has been hacked.


    Great! Can’t understand these assholes that think destroying people’s work is fashionable. This is my 2nd WordPress site to go down in flames; believe me, my original site was NOT hooked to anything in Russia. Now what? I can’t make any changes because I can’t access the dashboard, either.

    understand these **** that think destroying people’s work is fashionable

    They don’t think it is fashionable, they are sophisticated and want to steal user and credit card data.

    You’re probably right, but there’s no such info on these really harmless sites. I think a lot of these sleazeoids just get off on wrecking other people’s stuff. Sort of like trashing a little kids sand castle. Anyway, Hostgator cleaned out the system and it’s functioning well – for now. Thanks to all who offered help.
