Reason why the forums took so long to reopen was there are several sites hosted on this server. The hacker got into the database of the server and left 100's of scripts and back doors. Devile had to make sure that everything was delt with before relaunching. He is actually moving server to keep his high standard of work.
The hacking cost Devile ALOT of time and money to fix and it's a 1 man job at that extent.
The 2 guys who are working with me are well known and Devile trusts them complealty. When I gave Devile my brief and plan for the project we spoke about aspects and he will be involed but he trusts me and the 2 other managers enough to do this project.
Remember I am still one of the few admins Devile ever picked for this job and he trusts me compleatly and haas done for some time. Hell I can even log Z4 on if I really wanted to again. Devile will help us as much as we need but ultimatley it will be 3 of us responsable for the server. My role is to work with the public and the staff, it's what I do best but also remember I am a computing student also so I am able to help and deal with problems. Actually all of the managment have advanced level skills in IT so we can do whats needed.
