    The first step is to identify how the hackers gained access and to remove that vector.
    It could be an insecure server, software on the server, a compromised account, etc.

    Next you need to check if any malicious files have been uploaded or any of the core files edited.
    That may require doing a restore from a known good backup and in the worst case, could even require a server rebuild.

    I restored an old database, and it works, but I have no idea how the hacker did
    So, I will try to see how to secure my forum.
    Do you know how I could know where the hacker is entered?
    How can we secure a forum?
