It looks that my website has been hacked but in my WordPress installation (and in the DB nothing in the wp_posts table) I can't find the 4,000 pages that has been published. You will find most of them in the Google index with this <snip> . There's a 302 redirection. I've contacted the website <snip> that is the target of the redirection. They keep telling me their IT will get in touch with me, but actually, they don't. :(

What could you please advice me? Thanks in advance!

Did you do full backups of your WP install? WP is prone to hacking. You cannot just leave WP on its own and not hold its hand. Frequent updates, checks on vulnerabilities, monitoring your raw access log, are all important.

Ask your host provider to restore the last full backup and go from there. If you have no full backup then that is catastrophic. Beware Wordpress' seemingly lovely front end UI. The back end hidden vulnerabilities belies its weaknesses.

There's no need to contact the people that your web site is being redirected. They want all your traffic. Cntact your host provider.

Thank you for your answer TorontoBoy.

I have some backups, but it doesn't include the second installation, and I still need this one for the moment. I'll do it when I'll have finished using this installation. Thanks again for your advices.
