I got updated my system from 2.0.10 to 2.0.13 successfully and everything was working fine. Thereafter, I installed xcGallery and it worked fine till last night. When I woke up this morning and entered Administration page, I couldn't find any modules in the left side of administration page.

Administration page is almost blank except link to Control panel home(clicking leads to the same page), XOOPS News, homepage and logout, and of course the footer (Powered by XOOPS 2.0.13 © 2001-2005 The XOOPS Project)

Please help!

sounds like a module error. or something. try deleting adminmenu.php from the cache folder.. make sure that folder is writable too.

please don't cry hacked when you don't know for sure you were hacked.. it gets everyone worried over something that isn't likely the cause.

Thanks m0nty,

I deleted the file and now it works fine. I shouldn't have written by including 'hacked?' It was a mistake.

How can this problem be avoided in the future?

I find more files inside cache... will it be done from admin > preference where one can select time span for caching files?

I never doubt the security set up of xoops, besides XOOPS protector in place I'm well confident and also I've been visiting xoops.org site regularly for updates.

yes any modules or blocks that have cache turned on will write files into the cache folder :)
