    I got this issue with one of my websites where from time to time my website's raw files would get removed. If anyone could look into it and figure this out i will give you $10. Attached is how it looks like when the files get removed.

    What kind of hosting are you on - shared, VPS, dedi?
    Are you using Wordpress etc - do you think someone else has access to your accounts or do you think there is a bug in the code (if so how long had the site been up before it started happening?)

    Are you using any nulled code?

    Thats the normal questions I start with before clearing up a hack attack on a server - if you need help feel free to shout but I think you are shooting a tad low with a $10 offer. Just my opinion though!

    No worries - clever little trick that was as well! If you ever find out who it was, kick them in the nuts :D

    Hey fatboy

    Really curious to know what have you done :D

    Was it someone else accessing his server and deleting the files? From the pic, It looks to me like the index file is lost, which gives the directory listing. So how did you fix it up?

    My first thought was that someone renamed the index.php or index.html file. This is most often human error. Nice of Fatboy not to call OP out on it.
