    With http://smekeri.netfreehost.com, do you have access to phpmyadmin with that account?

    The phpBB server was hacked a couple of weeks ago, many hosts said it was a security hole in PHPBB, however, the folks at PHPBB denied it.

    The upshot of the thing was that some hosting companies disabled features or in some cases actually deleted their forums. There is a discussion about it at the PHPBB forum.

    If you have access to phpmyadmin login and export the database to your own machine as a zip file. You can restore it through phpmyadmin aswell.

    There wasn't a security hole in PHPBB software, it's awstats that had a problem.
