WARNIGN - Proceed with caution

After reading the 1 star reviews i decided to install this plugin on a text database firs. Big mistake. Immediately after activating the plugin i got a 404 error and was not able to access the site.

If you do proceed you can fix this quite easily.

The plugin creates a file called 'GZipNinjaSpeed_install_backup1467737212.htaccess' in the root WordPress folder. All you need to do is delete the current '.htaccess' file from the root folder and then rename the 'GZipNinjaSpeed_install_backup1467737212.htaccess' to 'htaccess'

This restored the access to my site.

Developers of the plugin you need to sort this our or make people aware there is a risk of messing thing up and give them instructions on how to resolve it.

Caused a 500 error on my site
By , for WP 4.3.1

Installing immediately caused a 500 error on my web site, making the dashboard completely unreachable and reverting the web site pages to either unstyled/unthemed text with no images or 500 errors. Had to edit my .htaccess file via FTP to fix; editing out the references to Ninja did it. Thanks to the helpful user BSM2015 who posted that solution.

Do not install it will cause a 500 error.

To fix:

Take out any ref to ninja from the .htaccess file then upload the file again with your ftp.

Made dashboard unavailable
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin put a new htaccess file on my server and edited the existing htaccess causing the dashboard to be unavailable to me. I checked my site's speed on Google and it actually made it SLOWER.

Crashed my site
By , for WP 3.8

Thankfully, I immediately found the problem -

My .htaccess file was copied to GZipNinjaSpeed_install_backup.htaccess and a bunch of Gzip code was put into my true .htaccess file. Replacing the original .htaccess code and deleting the plugin manually solved it and brought my site back up.

You'll loose your current .htaccess
By , for WP 3.8

GZip Ninja Speed Compression created an empty backup file called GZipNinjaSpeed_install_backup.htaccess and removed everything in my current .htaccess.

I'm simply gonna copy over the new rules.. and uninstall this plug in.
