bot

Support and whatever about the old Perl version of Aardvark Topsites.

bot

Postby DforDog » 2006-06-09 08:33 am

I have been running Topsites well for months now. However, I went to add a new link for someone recently and I kept getting error messages saying files were missing. I looked on the file list using FTP and in Sources is a file called bot.

Have I been hacked? What is bot and should it be there?

I was right, some of my Topsites files were missing. I tried to replace things but it just won't work properly. I have tried for hours to get things back to normal but can't so for now I have removed all Topsites files but that bot file won't delete. It is now sitting there all on it's own in my old Topsite folder.

Help... what is bot, should it be there and if not, how do I get rid of it?

Any help appreciated.

Sorry I think I have put this in the wrong place as it doesn't refer to the PHP version.

it sounds like you could have been hacked. if you have a backup of your files, restore them.

Thanks. But I can't put any files back until I get rid of that bot file and it simply won't delete. Any ideas please?
