i got sentinal instaled. but, an hour after the install my site restored everything to it's default. i tryed logging in as admin but i cant make any changes to anything. i went to check mysql and i get this error:

MySQL said:
User '??????' has exceeded the 'max_questions' resource (current value: 50000)

my isp says that they need to flush mysql and it will take up to 12 hours to get it done.

is this a known problem or did i set something up incorectly?

please help

This is a limitation set by your host. It is not Sentinel related. It should not take them any time at all. They are handing you a line of BS, imo. You are no doubt on a shared server and they have a set number of queries/hour/day/whatever and you have exceeded it.

If someone wanted to hammer your site you might have been dDos'd and that would drive your queries to the max. But, it's hard to say w/o examining your logs.

Your server logs. Contact your host. Since I don't know what the attack was, I can't say. But, NukeSentinel will protect you from the admin exploit once you activate the admin protection in the configuration panel.
