    The last update made no changes to your database, and so it would not have broke your database.

    I don’t know what your error was, but you didn’t ask for help, so the problem could have been caused by anything.

    You think i’m silly?
    Your plugin asked for an update database.
    Made the whole database corrupted.

    Nobody said you were silly.

    The plugin does not have the ability to corrupt your database. No plugin does. If you upgraded from a much older version of the plugin (the last database update was over a year ago), and something happened to your database then this is because of your database setup and not because of the plugin. Again, the plugin does not have the ability to corrupt your database. You can check the support forum to confirm that this is not happening for other people.

    If your database is corrupted then you should speak to your hosting provider. It is not a plugin problem.

    Moderator note: Hey, @handola, your reply is pretty rude. I suspect you’re conflating the occasionally seen “Database Update Required” from a WordPress core update with an update to this plugin.

    If your site is still down, please post a support topic in the Fixing WordPress forum.

    When I tried to update your plugin, a popup appeared with a database update. I have agreed to that update. After that, the site was no longer 100%. Long loading times, etc! Restoring from backup was very difficult. Because the entire database has become corrupt. I had to manually reset everything. I immediately removed the Redirection plugin.
    I then updated all plugins and WordPress. And luckily everything is working properly again.
