I broke my website today when I put the wrong username on the permissions configuration page and locked myself out! “Config” option disappeared under SlimStat when listing all plugins.
I could still go to SlimStat Editor though so went in to make what seemed to be a easy permissions name change. Seemed to worked at first but then ENTIRE website is crashed, cannot see it on any computer, even when not signed in.
Updated WordPress yesterday. All plugins are current. I know that SlimStat is officially incompatible with W3 Total Cache, but the combination has been working well enough to be helpful, so I let it be.
Thankfully there is a Full backup that can be restored but I’m not hearing back from my go-to-guy yet. The Sedlex procedure requires more tools than I’ve learned yet.
HOWEVER, if the blockage is only SlimStat, maybe WE can remove (uninstall?) the SlimStat plugin from my FTP window? How to save the data? Maybe by removing SlimStat my website would return and then I could reinstall it and refrain stupid mistakes again … ? Or maybe just removing a file that would rebuild itself would possibly work?
Here are the files I see via FTP:
uninstall.php size 1,219
index.php size 25
wp-slimstat-dashboard.php size 5,344
wp-slimstat-js.php size 9,480
wp-slimstat.js size 7,803
wp-slimstat.php size 36,533
(plus some .txt and .png files)
wp-slimstat-admin.php size 44,906
geoip.csv size 2,598,406 (is this my data I could save off & return?)
cache.php size 241,794
Learning more everyday …
