I initially thought I'd been hacked, but subsequently realized that the php start and end tags <?php .... ?> were intact and everything else in the file was missing. I can't imagine a hacker taking the trouble to selectively remove the content and leave the tags.I was left scratching my head, but my host kindly came to my rescue, quickly figured out the problem, and activated the backup copy of the file.

This presumably prevents accidental writing to the file & erasure of all or part of the contents, but I don't think it addresses the route cause of why the file is getting modified the way mine was.BTW did you look at the contents of your file to see if contained something e.g. the php tags? I'm just curious.
