The e-commerce.

categories messed up..where do i change them (possibly hacked)


Recommended Posts

Hi Oscommerce people,

I have a site here


i sell Cd's DVDs etc

my site has been running smoothly for a year...just got back from a holiday to find the category pane on the left had been altered to include links for products i do not sell (glass hydrometers) and takes customers to another site.

I spoke to the webhost they say they have no idea (as they usually do). The links that are now on my site are from a company that also uses the same web host as me..so i am suspicious.

Anyway..i don't know how to get rid of the incorrect links and replace/restore my old ones.

Where are the links for the categories defined...which is the file i need to look at?


Please help

It is a shared server problem, you are using the same tmp directory or cache directory as the other site. Rename your tmp directory and it should solve the problem.
