Support » Plugin: Pretty Links - Link Management, Branding, Tracking & Sharing Plugin » Upgrade to v3 Chewed up My Disk Space

  • Resolved neilgee


    So I had the plugin on auto upgrade to version 3 – got an alert in the morning that my disk space was gone and my sites were offline.

    The problem was due to Pretty Link v3 cause the redirects which were writing to the apache logs so much and wp-debug log that it killed the disk space, sites were offline.

    I use Swift Lite cache, I removed the logs downgraded the plugin, cleared the cache and re upgraded but the issue happened a second time, now I am leaving the plugin at an earlier version.

    This is a poor initial release if not tested with cached websites.

    Please update to version 3.0.1 as it has a fix for this issue, and several other issues.

    There should be no more output to the error logs, but let me know if anything shows up.


    We had the same problem with version 3.0.0. Version 3.0.1 has fixed it for us. Nevertheless it has been a mayor headache with several hours of server downtime.

    Best regards from Spain.
