Support » Plugin: WP Session Manager » Crashed entire website

  • After installing and clicking “Activate” – I left for a few minutes, only to find this completely corrupted my SQL Database and caused my website to throw a “Error establishing a database connection” error.

    Deleting the directory from plugins did not resolve the issue.

    My web hosting company is going to attempt to restore a backup of my site in an attempt to get it back up and running.

    This should be a support question, not a review.

    Keep in mind that WP Session Manager is an extension that does nothing aside from provide support for $_SESSION in WordPress. Unless you’re developing a plugin or a theme that uses that, it won’t actually do anything for your site. Said another way: this isn’t something you should just activate on a site.

    As for the error you hit – I can’t even begin to diagnose this without more information. The plugin, upon activation, attempts to create a new database table for storing session data. It doesn’t modify other tables or other data, so I’d want to know more about what you’re seeing with your “completely corrupted SQL database.”

    Further – if you’re already using plugins (or a theme) that independently embed session management, there’s high potential for conflicts in the code. But that would be present in sessions breaking, not in database failure. Something else is going on here, but no one will be able to fix it without more information from either you or your host.
