It’s at 1.5.26 and it renders okay. At first it crashed, but uploading the /components/simplecaddy/ files did it. Evidently the unistall was not completely successful.
All the images that post date 8/28 are missing, but I can copy them from the contaminated zip one at a time. I have a sh*tty Internet connection at this hotel, so I need some time at Starbucks. But, none the less, it’s operational and it should be safe. Give me a chance to upload as many of those files as I can and then I will take it live.

SimpleCaddy uninstalled, then dB backed up: ilchess_web_121007-1154.sql.gz
In preparation for Joomla upgrade, backup file folders in home/org/, exclude icb_pdf as too large and otherwise backed up. Downloading as org_folders_121007-1214.tar.gz

JFusion has been uninstalled. This separates the main Joomla site login from the Forum Login. It also removes the Joomla login module. I will need to create a new one. Administrative login is now at ICA Joomla Admin.
August minutes (uploaded after Sept meeting) are missing. I will upload the pdf from my local copy. [done 07:10]

Completed installation of Joomla 1.5.15. Completed restoration of files dated 2012-08-28. Tweaked configuration and site is restored and appears to be working okay. I now want to examine it for a day or so and ensure that all is well. Assuming all is well, I will delete a few old modules and disconnect the Forum and Joomla login tables. Once that is done, I will upgrade to Joomla 1.5.26. The site will remain behind password protection until the 1.5.26 has been installed. Oct 10th still looks feasible.
I’m in Des Moines headed toward Chicago. We will stop early today, perhaps I’ll get a couple more hours to work this evening. Expected arrival in Morton Grove is Sunday afternoon.

il-chess.org is down for maintenance. It may be down until October 10, 2012.
For those who would like a few more details: The site has been cleaned of all infected files. A fresh copy of Joomla 1.5.15 and a copy of our files from August 30th have been uploade. That may miss a few photographs and minutes, but they can be restored piecemeal. (The files change slowly.) We have daily backups of the database. All published and pending articles will be restored. The forum will also be resorted.
- Complete the installation of Joomla 1.5.15 and restore the data. That will bring us back to where we were.
- Upgrade to Joomla 1.5.26. That will protect us from being hacked again.
- As part of the upgrade, I am separating our Joomla and Forum login. Only a few people use the Joomla login, and it will simplify upgrades for both package
Thanks for your patience,
