Clean Upgrade from v. 4.0.2 after being hacked


Recommended Posts

My WHMCS was hacked last night by some a little wotsit (trying very hard not to turn the air blue here!) and although I have made lots of changes to logins, etc to prevent it from happening again, I have been advised to upgrade to the latest version (I currently have 4.0.2).


However rather than the standard upgrade, I have been advised to completely delete the old install and start again. I want to keep the databse untouched if I can, so would really be just deleting and reinstalling files - are there any databse differences between v. 4.0.2 and the latest version?


Also if anyone has any advice on how best to upgrade/resolve this I'd really appreciate hearing from you!
