Odd Site Behavior
All of the sudden – out of the blue really – every site I host is either giving me redirect errors or trying to load "install.php". This is happening on two WP installs and one yourls install.

Is this a hack? Let me know what other information to give you if it will help. Thanks! I am freaked out!

I don't know enough to say for certain, but check out your .htaccess file on /home/user/mywebsite.com with an SSH terminal program or with S/FTP. For the WP sites, it should only have 5-6 lines that say something like 'for wordpress'.

I use Bulletproof Security plugin, so the .htaccess file is quite robust. I can post its contents here if you think it would be of trouble-shooting value.

The WP installs are on:
http://artwpn.com (should redirect via htaccess to http://blog.artwpn.com, but just gives a 403 Forbidden error)
http://agitink.com


EDIT: I fixed it. I am embarrassed to even admit what it was… changed my DB settings and never updated the config files! DOH!
