    I could not access my website. There's an error showing up.

    I'm with them right now, and they don't seem to know the problem.

    Update: They said that my site is processing ton of stuff. Do you think it's coming from add-ons? If so, how can I disable the add-ons through cpanel?

    I received this email. The message states.." Last warning. If you still won't cooperate with lucidire***, a non-stop ddos attack will be sent to your forum." How can I prevent this?

    Prevent DDOS attacks?

    Also, are you at war with another site or something?

    I don't actually have an idea. But our site has been growing fast since last year and some companies don't want that because they are running out of businesses.

    Appears you are having a DDOS attack.

    Ask your web hosting company to assist.

    If I use the back-up I have, will it make my site up again?

    No, it won't.
    Probably nothing is wrong with your current database.

    Someone is maliciously targeting your site.

    If your host doesn't know how to deal with that, find a new host.

    I note you also have a ticket open, so there is no point duplicating effort here.

    Does this code belongs to xenforo?

    Code:
     Rewriterule ^blog/(.+)/(.+).html$           ./blog/view/blog.php?page=$1&mode=$2 [NC]
    Rewriterule ^blog/(.+).html$                    ./blog/blog.php?page=$1 [NC]
    Rewriterule ^blog/(.+)/$                                ./blog/view/blog.php?page=$1 [NC]
    Rewriterule ^blog/$                                             ./blog/blog.php [NC]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    Rewriterule ^blog/(.+)/(.+)$            ./blog/view/blog.php?page=$1&mode=$2 [NC]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^blog/(.+)$ ./blog/blog.php?page=$1 [NC]
    </IfModule>
    
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://pinoyexpatforum.com/.*$      [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://pinoyexpatforum.com$      [NC]

    None of that is standard in a .htaccess.

    I don't remember adding that code. Can that be the reason why my site is down?

    Do you have an addon blog?

    I only have the Library by Waindigo but not sure if that code is for that.

    I saw ablog_mod file that has htaccess containing this...

    Code:
    <Files *>
        Order Allow,Deny
        Deny from All
    </Files>
