Need help with web site...
This past summer we had somebody do a database/php script for us for Islandofhotties.com
During a server move, the databse disappeared.
We want to get the site back-up ASAP and are looking for a programmer who can do it for us.
We think the PHP script itself is still in tact and supposidly that was the toughest part, now the tables, etc. need to be configured in mySQL.
Here are some of the errors:
Warning: Access denied for user: 'hottiepatrol@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /home/hottiepatrol/public_html/config.inc on line 10
Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Access denied for user: 'hottiepatrol@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /home/hottiepatrol/public_html/config.inc on line 10
Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/hottiepatrol/public_html/profile.php on line 19
The PHP script obviously needs to be changed a bit to fit the new database links, etc. but we THINK the tough part would be the database.
Please let us know what you can do for us either via e-mail or via this board.

I am sure I can get it working for you. It probably just requires some work to get everything setup.. However if the database is gone you would not have any of the data from the old site.
Can you either email me mgeCLIP@liquidx2.com obviously remove the CLIP part, or post your email address on the board for further contact on this matter?

The guy who built this is an idiot.
Making your database username and password available to all is not a smart thing. It could even be the same as your ftp account.

Wow mate.. you seriously got hosed on that one Whoever that person was, don't hire them again.
Don't you have a backup of the database to recover? If not, do you have the data in some other (digital) format that'll allow someone to do code to move it back to a database instead of re-entering it all by hand? Your big problem is the missing data, not the code. The code can be re-written/fixed pretty quickly by someone who knows PHP, but the data migration could kill you.

and they need to setup a database/user as specified in the php script and they need to recode due to security because the original author was an idiot...
