I look after a website for a community in Spain and it has ben hijacked and rerouted to somewhere else.

The address is www.duquesafairways.net

Can anyone help me regain control of the site or point me in the direction of where I might get assistance?

There are two things that you should do.

First and foremest contact http://www.phpbb.com/ about your problem as they should have the domain change on sort of log, and will be able to give you control once more.

Second, I'm not super familiar with pbpBB boards, however most forum hosts have some type of "support ticket" within the Administrator Control Panel (ACP). Look around in there for one of these support tickets and fill out for them. If they do have one, this will help speed up the process of recovering your board.

If both of those fail, or you are confused please let me know.

This is not a development issue, so I am moving this to a more appropriate forum. As Aanders has suggested, contact the host. THere is nothing at all that you can do if you have no access to the server.

EDIT: On the other hand, there really is no other section that this would fit in.
