    Hi guys,

    Was playing around with my server last night and checking my traffic stats - followed a referer link and found someone with exactly the same site as me (design, name etc just on a different domain). I quickly got my host to change passwords etc but they now have my site (not too worried about that) but also a script I own exclusive rights to and cost me around $1k.

    I emailed their host about it - no reply.
    Emailed them - no reply.
    Did a whois lookup - have most of their details from that

    What can I do?

    thanks!

    You sure they stole the script and not just the layout?

    yeah may want to hack into his server, and look at his php/SQL... make sure he stole it rather than copying your layout. then, redirect his traffic to your site..

    if your script is in php, there is no way to steal it unless you server is hacked.
    otherwise i believe he stole you layout

    They probably used something like httrac which is a freeware script that can download all html files. Like someone else said here, there's no way for them to steal the .php files unless they actually hacked into your webserver (no easy task in most cases)

    whats the site link of the stolen one may be i can help ?? and are u 100% sure that he stolen ur db as well script because it may be possible that ur hosting provider leaked it ! or if u own the server then it hacked 100% either no other way to get db and php files ! php files can be recode and layout also can be stolen but DB 100% nope ! unless hacked or has access to mysql !
