I am an administrator of a DNN server but have no experience with DNN and am tasked with fixing an issue with the server that I have no clue where to start. All I can really say for certain is that we're running version 4.4.2 (216).
Yesterday, we had a user make a new webpage which sent the server into a 3 hour "unavailable" state, this "unavailable" state is an ongoing issue for my organization and the developer house that we are working with also seem to be clueless about how to resolve it, but this is not the issue I'm here for.
The issue is that after the "unavailable" state cleared up my Log Viewer and Database are filling up with Host Alert entries. The developer's "solution" is to do what the message says and turn off the alerts, which in our opinion is ignoring that we have a problem, and they also think that our site might be hacked, which I'm also not convinced since we are essentially "nobody" to want to hack.
So the message that I'm getting is the following... Note anything in [BRACKETS] are the same values only hidden for the sake of protecting identifying data.
Advanced Friendly URL Provider Duplicate URL Warni:Page Naming Conflict
Duplicate Page Details:Page
naming conflict. Url of
(www.wesleymoraes.com/site/fotos/programs/[EVENT]/home/) resolves to two
separate pages (home [//programs//[EVENT]//home] [tabid = [#####]], Law Day
[//[MYSITE]//AdminMenuItems//[EVENT]] [tabid = [#####]]). Only the
second page will be shown for the url.
Warning Information:PLEASE NOTE : this is an information message only, this message does not affect site operations in any way.
Suggested Action:Rename one or both of the pages to ensure a unique URL
Hide this message:To

In the section for Duplicate Page Detail we are seeing multiple websites that are not ours where the www.wesleymoraes.com is, such as zz.qq.com, and www.tekrevue.com/xbox-one-component-cost-90-higher-ps4-thanks-mostly-kinect. These are obviously not our pages and we have no clue why our DNN is finding or flagging duplicate URL warnings against them. When I go to these provided URLs they are all blank.
Any ideas about what might be going on or what to do to resolve it? To me it sounds like there is something wrong with the indexing service, but it doesn't mean that the developer isn't correct that we might have been hacked. Its just that we don't have anyone in-house with enough DNN knowledge to know where log files even are to look at them, and the developer isn't providing us with much confidence that they know how to resolve the issue.
