Support » Plugin: String locator » BEWARE

  • I wouldn’t advise using this plugin. I used it to search for a code in my WordPress directory, and it crashed my entire website. To the point where I nearly lost everything and my server host had to install one of the automatic backups we created the night before. If we hadn’t had that backup all would be lost (15+ years of work).

    It injected 115 MB of data instantaneously into my tables. I have the proof in phpMYadmin.

    DO NOT USE – unless you hate your website of course.

    Hiya,

    I’m very interested in hearing what happened here, that sounds like a lot of data (although yes, the plugin does put data into your database during processing to avoid timeout errors), could you elaborate on what kind of problems you were experiencing because of this, perhaps some details about your setup and site (the debug information from the new Site Health section would be very useful here, if you are able to provide that)?
