I just logged in to my DirectAdmin after a REALLY long time and I noticed I've used up almost 99% of my disk space. I'm sure I'll have files to fill up only like maybe 20%. The message system says 1000s of emails have been sent out through my account, last was Feb. I changed my password and I'm trying to find the directories to delete to clear up space...should I be worried more?
Yes. Which server is your host on?
Server 1 got hacked.
If you're not on server 1,
that means other servers need checking too.
I'm hosted on Server 2. And the only thing worth backing up is the blog I've been working on now, Wordpress has been doing that automatically.
And hello there Dean! I do visit once in a while and lurk..I am too lazy to post. College and a new internship now has been keeping me busy. If this blog takes off I might move it to a paid host.
How've you been?
I agree with Deanhills.
IF you can not check your web site, disable comments. I had an unused myBB forum on Server 3. A while ago, I got an e mail from Direct Admin that my diskspace was almost full. I came back and saw that spam bots posted like 30000 posts on forum and filled up the database. I believe your situation is the same.
@Dean - Everything you've suggested seems good to me - but what's with deleting the default admin account and creating a new one?
