    Hi all, this has probably been answered many times but I haven’t been able to find a solution.

    My site was hacked last night and a malicious file was placed in our site. I found the file and removed it but in the meantime I deleted the old wpadmin folder via FTP and inserted a new one (without backing up the old :()

    Now I’m trying to log in as admin and I can’t
    I’m with 1& as hosting and can’t find the wp databases so I can add a new admin via phpmyadmin.

    How can I resolve this? How can I get back into my site?
    Any help would be appreciated
