Server hacked, cannot access adwords campaigns

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all. Our server was hacked this morning and all the config files were wiped - about 80 sites all down.

 

I therefore tried to access my adwords account to suspend all my campaign until the site was restored - I don't want to send visitors to a dead site - but I cannot access any of my campaigns, presumably because there is no HTTPS/HTTP response.

 

Is there a way round this?

Used Adwords Editor and it appears to have posted the changes to the campaigns.

 

Can't be certain, if it didn't work I'll post an update.

Final update.

 

Using adwords editor did access the account correctly, and paused the campaign until the server was restored.
