Hello -

I have had a php/mySQL site up and running for several months now with no problems. I checked the server today and the site was unavailable with the message that one of the tables did not exist. I subsequently went and logged into the mySQL server only to find that two of my databases had been dropped. How can this be? No one else knows the password and I was nowhere near the machine during that time period!

Any help/info appreciated as I'd like to avoid the reoccurrance of this problem!

This has actaully happened to me once, never really figured out why, or how it happened.

I do know, if it was some kinda abuse in the script, the person who did it probably would do it more then once untill you fixed it.
