Visitor Maps Extended Referer Field
[resolved] Caused my system to crash. (7 posts)

    I did the update as usual via WordPress updates. After updating this plugin i tried viewing who has been online. Got some kind of popup notification that something didn't exist, i should have screen shot the error but didn't think much of it at the time.

    Trying to load my site all the CSS was missing. Trying to log in i got an error that wp-login.php was not found. Tried deleting this plugin didn't help. I ended up restoring the previous plugin from a backup and restored my database from a dump done early last night and got the site back up.

    Possibly the .htaccess in the WordPress root directory could have been bumbled. I noticed a deny from statement = but no associated ip. I use my own .htaccess in the sites root so maybe they were conflicting with each other.

    This bug is fixed in version 1.0.9. Thank you for reporting it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    To fix your site, you simply needed to delete "deny from " from the end of .htaccess.

    Please help! I also get the error as below. Then I can't navigate anywhere in the site without getting an Apache error. How can I disable this plugin if I can't get into the site... at all?

    OK, I figured out how to get FTP access, and removed deny from, from .htaccess.

    Can anyone tell me what happened, and how to prevent this from happening again?

    @robertwagnervt, if you update to version 1.1.0 it shouldn't happen anymore.
