My Forum Got Hacked?
#1
Today I noticed my forum giving me 500 Internal error. So far everything was working before but its happened suddenly. Then I went to check my forum folder as its on subdirectory. I saw its permissions are XXX so I tried to change it to 705. But I got an error in ftp saying that "550 Could not change perms on forum: Permission denied" and then it restore to permission XXX . Please help me out. I am not sure if I got hacked or not. Also unable to enter into the forum through ftp access. showing error " 550 Can't change directory to forum: Permission denied " when I click to enter inside of it.

well, it cannot be hacked !! internal server error 500 appears due to many reasons ; server error log should have the clue ...

Try contacting your host. They might have disabled CHMOD perms.

I tried to create a new directory in same domain and hosting and they are working, even tho I can change permissions on them but beside the forum directory which I am having the issue.

That 550 error comes only when the CHMOD perms is disabled for that particular directory. I do that change via root in my VPS for some sensitive areas, so the only way I believe is to contact your host and ask him.

Edit : not seen above response Smile

you have to try changing CHMOD permissions at web host's file manager ...

I have linux web hosting server. can you tell me how can I do it? I tried to use the FTP manager in web server but when I click ok after giving the permission its telling me "cannot read directory". and then rolling back to default one. Sad
#8
If you have ssh access try and change the perms via that if an error comes up it should be more detailed
