XF 1.5 Server error, site down.



I have been running a 1.5 XF site for a few years. Pretty much unchanged. I was just about to do a 2.0 upgrade, and my site has gone down.a few months before the site whet down, a ton of accounts were created with russian IP's.

the site now says:

A server error occurred. Please try again later.

and it looks like everything was un-installed or deleted. I have done a sever backup. no change..

Could anybody help? or offer a service to resolve this? I am unfamiliar with this, and I can not even login to the admin portion.. I fear it may be gone. It has been a few months, and I feel the damage is done.. users are leaving fast.

Downgrade to PHP 7.0 and that should get the site working again.

Then you can upgrade to XF 2.2 and then upgrade PHP to 7.3/4.
