    Installed this "so called" plugin, but broke my whole site!!

    I now only get :

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I deleted the sites database and the plugin files, overwritten the wordpess core install
    except for the wp-content files. But this didn't even help. What to do now? Please advice as why this happened and how to fix it!

    thanks

    my advice for now... Do not install this!

    I'm very sorry.
    I would like to take my words back!
    I should have read the installation guide first.

    A great tip dough... is that you explicitly point out to users, on the plugins wordpress.org splash page , that they need to change the config.php file BEFORE they press ACTIVATE PLUGIN !!!

    Thanks!

    Nope... did some database rebuilding, file replasing... nothing helped unfortunatly. After a clean install, I tried it again following the instructions closely but still can't get it to work. I also see the .htaccess is beeing changed trough the progress, I think this is throwing everything upside down on my install. Because when I replace it with a basic WP htaccess file the installation seems to be fixed and I can then uninstall the plugin properly.

    Probably something stupid I'm missing?? ... So my conclusion. If your not familiar with the some php, MySQL and how the Htaccess works, don't bother installing this.

    For anyone that encounters the same problem.. the reason that this happens is due to changes made to .htaccess.

    To roll back changes, delete the plugin from its folder and then replace the code in .htaccess (in the main website folder) to this:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    Worked like a charm! Gee wiz! Thanks a ton. Fastest repair ever. I feel real sorry for the poor sap(OP). Gosh, that sounded awful up there.
