There’s one problem with this plugin that could potentially cause your website to crash…
I had 2.086,352 rows in my database created by simple history. The reason, is because Simple History records every time a user fails to login. When websites are hit by brutal force attacks, this causes the plugin to register every single attempt on a new row in the database. That’s how I ended up with over 2 million rows. It would be great to have the option to pick what you want to keep track of.
Also, the database log is cleared after 60 days, there’s no option to change the number of days. I typically use this plugin when we need to pull a site down to make updates while the client is still making updates to the live site. Sometimes this updates can stall for months.. so 60 days is not always ideal.
Overall a good plugin. But it needs to give the user more control over some settings.
