Some German based (Sorry but he left messages saying so...) nappy wearing kid hacked into my Pphlogger admin and destroyed a years worth of data for 5 sites. Oh he's sooo cool and he prefers chocolate starfish to girls.

Yes I am annoyed. And if I ever meet him I shall remind him of a few things.

Anyway how was I hacked? I followed all the instructions on installation.

I'm running 2.2.5. BTW.

I'm installing it again. Looks like my password protection had been switched off - which means that it was my fault. That makes me even more angry with the little fudge packer!

The password protection is what failed you then.
Always make sure this is protected. I visit the admin side of pphlogger installation at least once a week (normally 3 or so times). This means i encounter the login prompt box for the passworded directory.

protect your admin folder with apache's basic authorization files (htaccess,htpasswd) and setup correct chmod settings for your config.inc.php file to prevent viewing by other users on the same server.
