  • Besides the fact that your plugin is sending random cron job junk to us, when I tried to delete your plugin it deleted most of our client’s WordPress files! All of the root and wp-admin and all of the index.php files! I had just updated the plugin yesterday (10/22/18), but decided not to keep it. Luckily, we have nightly backups. I would not recommend this plugin, and if you do risk your site with it, delete it using FTP or cPanel.

    Hello @developerdoll,

    We are really sorry this happened. There was a bug in our 1.11.2 version where we made a small change we that probably caused this behavior. We can’t unfortunately seem to reproduce the issue, but made a patched version 1.11.3 that should fix it.

    Can you confirm that you were update to the 1.11.3 version and that the problem still exists in that version?

    Yes, I had version 1.11.3, I said I updated the plugin on 10/22, your last update was 10/19

    OK, thanks. I read that but needed to be absolutely sure because in 1.11.3 everything that I can think of that could cause this issue was set back to how it was before. And because this never happened before, I was sure it would have been fixed.

    In the 1.11.2 I had a space to much behind the .. in this row
    if ( $file != “.” && $file != “.. ” ) {
    and one user who had the same issue (on version 1.11.2) reported an error message that pointed to that row. So I was curtain this was the cause of the issue, although I can’t replicate it exactly on my servers. On my servers the plugin just won’t delete when the space is in that row. In the 1.11.3 version the space is removed (besides a few other changes I made in the 1.11.2 version) and on my servers it tests OK.

    Now I am curtain you where indeed on version 1.11.3 I’m kind of lost in what could cause this behavior. I did several tests but for me and my tester it just works OK.

    But anyways, thanks for your reply.

    As of version 1.11.4, changed the function in such a way that it should not delete anything outside the plugins folders and just to be sure added a filter so that it will not delete .php files.
