WP Database Optimizer
Crashed my Server (4 posts)

    I just installed it and I got an error message stating that my server was down. I also got the following message:

    "Error establishing a database connection

    This either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at mysqlv2. This could mean your host's database server is down.

    * Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
    * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname?
    * Are you sure that the database server is running?

    If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the WordPress Support Forums."

    I had to remove the plugin folder using Filezilla, but i still get that error message about username/password not being able to contact the server.

    Anyone know what happened? I'm using the following plugins:
    Add 2 Any
    ALL in One SEO
    Bog Icons
    Extended Options
    FeedBurner plugin
    Featured Content Gallery
    Google Analytics for WP
    Google Sitemap Generator
    Google News Sitemap generator
    Login Lockdown
    No Disposable Emails

    Also, I want to make sure I have completely uninstalled it. Any instructions for that?

    You may need to repair the database.

    Access your WordPress database via phpMyAdmin (most hosting providers offer this in their control panel), check all of the tables, and choose "Repair tables" from the pull-down menu.

    This does not seem to be an issue with my plugin as my plugin does not effect how your installation connects to your database. I just made a fresh test installation of wordpress on my live server and i was unable to replicate this error.

    Any updates on how the plugin is working for you?

    One more comment

    i have a deactivation hook that has been built into the plugin since the first incarnation that deletes the options from the wp_options table. so if you uninstall the plugin, all traces of it are removed.
