Deleted Install.lock
« on: August 31, 2007, 04:27:28 am »

My site was hacked today with the insertion of free20.com code.
I tracked the hacker code down to the include folder. i deleted all its files and replaced the files from backup.
I didn't realize that install.lock was not on the backup...now Coppermine thinks it isn't installed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to reinstall and destroy my existing gallery.

Just create an install.lock file yourself and upload it.
