I've looked at all the log files, particularly auth.log, although there were thousands of login attempts to SSH and FTP, but none succeeded. And I don't know where else to look, please help.

It could be tricky to figure out how the attacker gets in. I'd be
curious what PHP application are you using right now? Do you have
properly set the permissions (i.e. files are either executable, or
writable, but not both; www user can't write on where code can be
executed, etc), and there is no vulnerability in your web application?
By the way, if you use ports you can install ports-mgmt/portaudit and
use 'portaudit -Fda' to check if there is known vulnerability with your
installed packages, just a hint.
