    Hi, this morning when logging onto my site I was met with the following message.

    Upgrading the forum...

    Don't worry, we will be back shortly with an updated forum. It will only be a minute ;).
    This message appears on every page protected by amember. I can not even access the control panel at www.mafementoring.com/amember/admin without this message. I have not changed any files and no one else has access.

    My sites membership area is paralyzed at the moment. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I emailed CGI support but it looks like they might be away for the weekend and I have a lot of stuff to do on the site.

    I forgot to mention I do not have a forum protected by amember on the site.

    Thanks again Alex for your fast response and getting my site back up so quickly.

    Here is what he found. Not sure how the code got there but glad it is fixed.

    Someone has added the following code to site .htaccess :

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(.*)/$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.mafementoring.com/$1/ [L,R=301]

    it was the source for troubes.

    I continue to be impressed and amazed at the outstanding service I have received !!!
