Support » Plugin: String locator » WP Mail SMTP Pro Conflict

  • Frank


    Hi there,

    I wanted to report that due to some kind of conflict with WP Mail Plugin, String Locator generates a 500 internal error when attempting to search the plugin directory:

    2021/02/18 23:21:56 [error] 28980#28980: *43512508 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: WordPress database error Duplicate column name 'error_text' for query ALTER TABLEwp_wpmailsmtp_emails_logADDerror_textTEXT NULL AFTERheaders`; made by require_once(‘wp-load.php’), require_once(‘wp-config.php’), require_once(‘wp-settings.php’), do_action(‘plugins_loaded’), WP_Hook->do_action, WP_Hook->apply_filters, WPMailSMTP\Core->get_pro, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Pro->__construct, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Pro->init, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Pro->get_logs, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Emails\Logs\Logs->__construct, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Emails\Logs\Migration->__construct, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Emails\Logs\Migration->validate_db, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Emails\Logs\Migration->run, WPMailSMTP\Pro\Emails\Logs\Migration->migrate_to_6″ while reading response header from upstream, client: 2601:281:d000:4037:4963:b6f7:62b0:fa28, server: _, request: “POST /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php HTTP/1.1”, upstream: “fastcgi://”, host: “www.<removed>.com”, referrer: “https://www.<removed&gt;.com/wp-admin/tools.php?page=string-locator”

    Can this be fixed via String Locator, or should I report the issue to the WP-Mail plugin developers? In the meantime I have to omit this plugin directory from string searches (I’m unable to search the entire WordPress repository like I used to). Thanks!

    That seems very odd indeed… I’m not quite sure what is going on there so will need to set it up locally to test and see if I can replicate the issue.

    Thanks in the meantime, I’m excluding searches into the WP Mail SMTP Pro folder so I can run String Locator properly.

    I am getting the same issue nothing modified in this plugin and on staging there is no error but on production, I am getting his error.

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate column name ‘error_text’]
    ALTER TABLE wp_wpmailsmtp_emails_log ADD error_text TEXT NULL AFTER headers;

    as I manually tried with removing the NULL and saved and hen enabling and save

    Also tried to repair but it failed with the message

    sitename.wp_wpmailsmtp_emails_log: The storage engine for the table doesn’t support repair

    any ideas on how should I fix

    All the plugins also the wordpress is on latest release.

    This issue has never been fixed despite being reported months ago. Good job!
