QuoteI only got a ten minute warning by the host and that exact moment I was getting a root canal treatment. Can't say which one in this second was more painful - losing 14 years of work or having someone poking a nerve.Due to the ModWiki bust up I could neither download the MySQL DB for backup nor upgrade the server administration software.I believe the server got compromised through an outdated Plesk control panel and they used it as a zombie for a DDOS attack.As soon as the hosting company got notified they just pulled the plug - which of course is the only thing they can do.So I cannot get to the server at all and they don't want to send me 150GB or put it somewhere for download - for now.D3W is just 400 mb or so, but it needs to get weeded out from the rest of the mess.Since a DDOS was the culprit there is an almost zero chance they wanted to screw the DB's up. Zombies are only worthwhile for as long as the owner doesn't realise where the extra computing power goes. This makes me very confident I can bring back the server soon in a clean state.I don't know Databases as good as you do, but I feel confident to be able to find the d3w_ prefixed tables - and that's all there is in terms of weeding out... For ModWiki, I don' t know. I'll most likely need your help give the original registrar (ice heart) isn't overly approachable or accessible - this is not meant to be read as uncooperative, unfriendly or hostile - quite the difference.

Quote from: bkt on August 12, 2014, 01:46:48 AMAlso worth noting is that it seems like Sikkpin is just as gone as D3W. I was in regular contact with him, working on finishing things up for False Dawn when both he and D3W went dark.
