Ninjex's Realistic Mission Challenge!

Hello guys, I have been putting together a Realistic Mission challenge today, and I hope you all enjoy it. I also hope you get stuck somewhere and facepalm a few times ;)

Here is the challenge:
Challenge location: http://94.23.62.140/challenge

Message from: TheTechGuru

Hey man, I heard you had some excellent hacking skills in your toolbox. I could really really use your help. I was recently hired to watch over this site while the Administrator is gone. He is on a two week vacation, that ends tomorrow. The problem is that while he was gone, the site has been defaced!!! I do not have the tools to get the site back up to its original condition. If he comes back and sees this, I am going to get terrible reviews, because of these childish hackers! Can you at least get the home page (index.html) back to normal? I have done some research and it seems like the hacker deleted/removed/moved files all around. What I need you to do is figure out how the hacker managed to do this, and see if you can possibly hack it back to it's original state before my boss returns! I know that the boss had a backup directory of some of the files called 'backup2009', can you see what you can do?
Thanks in advance,
- TheTechGuru

I haven't really had much feedback on this...
Is it too hard mayb?
Do you think I possibly did something wrong on my end?
Do you guys need hints?
Work with me here lol

Well, I haven't solved it yet, but I like the new script. Much better than the old one. So yeah, I'll keep trying...

I haven't had a ton of time to work on this but it is a bit difficult. I found where some of the files from the old site are, but not sure how to get permission to veiw them.

You are on the right track, maybe try some other things out, instead of keeping your focus on that.

Also for everyone, be sure to check the source code of the the site I posted in the OP, there is a key part to this challenge there.

Well, I found some interesting things and at least for a certain part of the site I'm authorized. Let's see where that gets me... Ninjex, I'm not sure you got the message via IRC, but if you didn't I sent you a PM with some spoilerish stuff.
Edit: nvm, you fixed it.

I did it!!! :D

This was a great challenge not too easy, but not impossible. It did make me think and I face palmed when I finally figured out how to get authorization.
