Once you found that this had happened, you should have done 2 things.
That is a standard procedure.
Before you posted your question here.

1: Restore the site to the last backup you made.
This should be done at least every 24 hours as a standard.

2: Make changes to the source code - so that this ACCIDENTAL error can never happen again.


You are the owner of a torrent site - or any site for that matter.
If you are going to be at the helm of any site.

You should know about downfalls - issues - site crashes, etc.
And be prepared for this to happen - and have a backup plan prepared.

If you don't know how to implement such a backup plan.
Then maybe you should re-think your decision about been an owner of a site.

The reason I am been a little harsh, in my reply.
Is because of the time it takes for you to get a reply here - regarding your issue.
Your site is offline - and your members are moving on to somewhere else.

So get yourself a good coder ( paid for or free - hey you never know what you might get )
Or learn real fast - how to do something about it for your self.

Feels weird to quote myself.

But just to make something clear in what I said.

I do not mean restore your site every 24 hrs.
I meant do a data base backup every 24 hrs.
And if you have made and code changes in the last 24 hrs.
Then do a full source code and data base backup.
