Messed up big time, need a fix
« on: May 09, 2016, 02:43:30 PM »
While trying to find and fix an exploit I've managed to really mess up my access to my server. I stopped all the services except web & mysql and for some reason I managed to reboot my VPS in that state. Now I can not log in via CWP or via terminal.

I'm left with only the main domain site working and all the other sites inaccessible. Can anyone help ? I've sent a support request in as I'm willing to pay but I've not heard anything yet.

BWT - I noticed the auto Wordpress updates where sending me false reports that my WP installations had been updated to the latest version. I noticed this as suddenly I started getting failed emails that were in fact spam being sent out from my server.

My host is dragging their feet on this so no it looks like I'm going to have trash the server and do re-install. Luckily I can acess simple Ftp and mysqladmin to do the exports of the sites.

No, I think ssh is not running.

Try to connect ssh with different Ip or use any free vpn
If you succefully logged in then reset the csf firewall.

I have a VPN but currently login to the terminal from anywhere. I've actually decided to move the websites to my other server and cancel that hosting. I know it was my fault but expected a lot more interest from the support staff there. Doing nothing is worse then just saying we can't help.

Well that's annoying.

After no response from my host I decided to move all the sites to my other server. I shut down this server to stop all the spam email filling the mailqueue. I've now done that so I restarted the server and incredibly I can log into to CWP now. The are 298,722 emails in the mailqueue :-)

If you are using wordpress I suggest you do a search for these files

60dir.php s151.02kb
mail.php 11.36kb
mysql.php 28.11kb
dir24.php 11.19kb
list.php

These are also a valid filenames so view the contents before delete. Most the time they get in the /images of any subdir or the /uploads
