Wordpress sites are failing - "wp-config.php" file disappears off server
Hi - I have had multiple Wordpress sites on my server have the wp-config.php disappear.
When I go to my site, I am greeted with “Sorry, I need a wp-config-sample.php file to work from. Please re-upload this file to your WordPress installation.” Is anyone familiar with this problem? It is frustrating as I have attempted to redeploy a wp-config file but I have had no success with it.
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!
