    Since selecting the option to 'enable file change detection.' my site has been overloaded with processes and shut down. I can't access the admin panel to change this but have access to cpanel and ftp. How do I switch this option off please using those resources??

    best wishes

    I just installed this plugin, enabled file change detection, and ran into the same issue. It brought my site and server to its knees.

    Since I could not even get to the admin panel to disable file change detection in the plugin, I had to disable it in the WP database. Here's what I changed:

    Table:
    <your name here>_options

    Query:
    SELECT * FROM '<your name here>_options' WHERE option_name = 'bit51_bwps'

    Within the option_value column (there is a very long string stored there with all the BWPS settings), change the value:
    "id_fileenabled";i:1
    To:
    "id_fileenabled";i:0

    Then restart your web server (Apache or otherwise) and you should be set.

    I hope this helps!
