Uninstalling and Reinstalling?
Technically, it’s version 3.4.6. 🙂
We’ve been having some brute force login attempts on our server. Installed the BWPS plugin yesterday and used the default, one-button settings. Overnight, it blocked and logged (2) separate login attempts from the Ukraine.
I decided to enable the “track site changes” and it broke my site. Got the dreaded 500 Internal server database error.
I logged into the server and disable the plugin manually, by adding a ~ in front of the filename. This allowed me to get back into the WP dashboard and delete the plugin. I also edited out all instances of BWPS from the .htaccess file and dropped the (2) BWPS tables from the SQL database and edited the config file.
My site started working again. So, I installed a fresh copy of BWPS and activated it and instantly, it broke my site. So, I did all the above again.
My question is how do I completely erase BWPS and all instances from my site and start from scratch? It appears there is still something in the database or a file that is triggering the old settings.
