Yeah. He asks for help and replies with stuff like, "Christ all mighty does anybody read.." when people like kchrist are friendly and try to help him... so I must be the jerk.
Was it a dog? Cat? Because even if it's a script, that's the work of a person.
Why would someone, script or not, restrict their own access to a few of one person's index files? If they have root access (doubt that), they'd do more. If they only have access to his account, then how is that a compromised server? It's not.
Do you honestly think there is any chance that the server is compromised and DH's reaction was, "that's your problem"? Of course not. Or do you think it's the whole server that got hit and he was the only one out of hundreds of users that noticed the damage?
And if it's really just someone messing with him and his empty websites, script or not, then it's possible that his own computer is what's compromised and someone is getting his passwords as he changes them. Maybe they have his email password and/or NDN ID password. If that's the case, they can just keep retrieving the new passwords as he creates them. There are plenty of things it can be besides a compromised server. Who knows?
Maybe no one here knows what the problem is, but neither does he, so he probably shouldn't be giving the people that were trying to help him a hard time. That goes for support, too. I've never had a reply like the one he received, so that should pretty much show that his approach isn't working.
