Joomla 2.5? J! 2.5 is outdated, unsupported and reached end-of-life nearly four years ago. Best recommendation for you is to migrate your website to J! 3.

I don't know why your administration login gives you a 404 Page Not Found error. I don't know if anyone here can help you with this. Image

The "Contact Us" page has a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error (something to do with the Fox Contact extension). Just guessing: foxcontact is one of those extensions that hackers often look for in order to exploit vulnerabilities—it only takes a few seconds to use Google to search for contact form exploits to find dozens of places where hackers can find out how to do damage to websites—with older versions of this software in order to attack websites, take them over, and break them. That's something you might want to investigate. The HTTP 500 error may simply be the result of software that was written for one version of PHP being incompatible with the version of PHP that your webhost uses today. The FPA report (see the image above) will tell us more.

Other parts of your website may also be broken (e.g. the "Register" menu item that requires AcyMailing) because other extensions are not installed or are also broken.
