[resolved] Set users per page to 999 - now I get Internal Server Error (5 posts)

    So, I was trying to edit as many users as possible over at:


    Under "Screen Options" I changed users per page to 999

    Now, I cannot access users.php because it times out and I get a 500 Internal Server Error.

    How can I reduce the users per page without having access to the page? What database setting can I edit.

    Please, help is appreciated. I was doing the mass user deletion because I got flooded with bots.

    finally found it in the db...

    it's in wp_xxxxx_usermeta

    search for "users_per_page" meta key and set it back to 500 and you should be good :)

    @foxstatic could you explain your answer a little more clearly? I am trying to set up WP to allow to display more than 999 but cannot find the option anywhere in the WP files.

    It sounds like your answer indicates that you found the setting in the database?
