    I am not a programmer and know little about this. Not even sure my site was hacked but for no reason the a database was deleted. I had the person who developed the site replace it with an old file he had from march. It's a tube site and back then there were only 522 videos and now there are 3000 (but they aren't getting reached) so the other 2500 videos people are coming in from organic and finding nothing. Also the member database was in there cause all the members are deleted. The 3000 vids are still there but not acessed or something.

    I also had paid to get some monetization done on the site and some of those changes apparently were in the file also cause they are gone also. The server company is not much help and says there's been a problem with the weekly backup and it hasn't been getting backed up.

    A couple weeks ago i was going to move servers so I did download around 2300 of the videos and have them on my laptop if need be from the site.

    Is this fixable and if so how much would it be as i'm not wanting to pay very much since the site has kinda been a money pit. Its been getting good indexing with 5,000 uniques a day and 20k plus page views and rising. I figured i'd wait til 100k and then find out how to make some money from it.

    If someone knows about this type of stuff please pm me with a price, or better yet if you can repair the database and monetize the site with better banner placements that i could actually make something off it I could put up a banner for you on the site for free advertising or something in exchange for the services.

    Thanks for reading this.

    btw - its a tube porn site.

    I think you should be most worried about patching up the holes the hackers exploited to wreck your site. I can help you with that for free, PM me. As for the other stuff, I'm not sure how much help I'd be.

    I have a back up from March and we did get the site up, it's just 3 months of work is missing now. :( Since the videos are still there I was hoping it could be fixed or patched/repaired to be able to get to all of the videos that are in the other database. Not to mention the php monetizing that was done for banner ad placement.
