X-E's co-Worst Poster of all time! says:

So among the perks of my hosting service is a free forum. Problem is, it's apparently been hacked by "Aten"

All the usual steps (banning, deleting the new forum created to announce the hacking) are not only failing, but clicking the button to do them is having no effect.

Anybody know how the hell I can fix this without deleting the forum?

EDIT~! A liitle foolery has eliminated the unwanted music and banner but I still can't access old posts. HAs anyone got experience with this kind of thing?

Specifically it says:
Could not get censored words from database


SQL Error : 1146 Table 'jkyle_phpbb.phpbb_words' doesn't exist

SELECT word, replacement FROM phpbb_words

Line : 500
File : /home/jkyle/public_html/forum/includes/functions.php

You are missing a table called jkyle_phpbb.phpbb_words and it's causing the functions.php to crap out. I am completely ignorant of php, mySQL, and phpbb, but if you have a way of restoring a particular table (got a backup?) that might be the easiest thing to do. If not-- and if no one else can help from here-- you might want to try the phpbb community. This link has a portion of somebody's backup script and you could use a part of his part of a backup script to at least re-create the table, even though it wouldn't have any data in it. If you *aren't* missing any other tables, that might fix the problem. Here is the part that is relevant to your needs:
    Originally posted by phpbb forum
    # TABLE: phpbb_words
    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS phpbb_words;
    CREATE TABLE phpbb_words(
    word_id mediumint(8) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
    word char(100) NOT NULL,
    replacement char(100) NOT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY (word_id)

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
