When I tried to look at your site my browser said your site was blocked because of malware! I guess you have been hacked.
See viewtopic.php?f=714&t=946026

I cleaned site, every file and folder, and inside file...2 months ago.
i scaned it with NeoPI script, almost every day, right now.
I secured it with disable_function in php.ini
I have malwarebytes antimalware, it still block my site.
Is this related maybe with database?
Should i create new database?

I did not manage to connect myjoomla with site - installed plugin shows error: 500 The file bfnetwork.xml could not be found.
But, yesterday, after last post, joomla 3.8.7 update appears.
I updated joomla, since then, no articles were created.

Did you delete all the folders/files ?

You should have updated Joomla as part of the process not waited until later.

So it's actually your forum that's being spammed because you have insufficient control on it ?
