    this version cannot update cause of zip error

    • http://bit51.com/ Chris Wiegman

      Hi Leniy,

      The zip is created automatically by WordPress’ plugin repository. You should be able to re-download it.

      • http://blog.leniy.org/ Leniy

        Thanks,maybe the connection between my host and wp server was disconnected.
        I can download the zip directly,but update still error

        • http://bit51.com/ Chris Wiegman

          Hmm. As much as I would like to help you with that issue I simply have no control over the zip created. Have you tried downloading it manually from WordPress.org and then uploading it via FTP to your site? Simply replacing the files is all you have to do for an update.

    Backup don´t work, Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) – altough I have checked and I have the allocated memory set high. After reading through many more besides me with the same problem and no solution I consider to look further for another plugin.

    • Nethaneel Sagun

      I get the same error when I turn on backup or file-change detection.

      • http://bit51.com/ Chris Wiegman

        These errors are due to not having enough RAM on your host/server. Upping the ram available to PHP will solve the problem.

        • Nethaneel Sagun

          I’ve already upped the RAM, increase memory limit in php.ini, and I even increased the memory limit for wordpress in the wp-config.php file.

          • Alexander Sverdlov

            put the right copy of php.ini in wp-admin.

  • Alexander Sverdlov

    wp-login.php is not protected. The public can still access it, even though I have enabled the “hide” feature on my site. Why would that be? How can it be fixed? Same for register.php, etc… It’s a shame.

  • Alexander Sverdlov

    please do not approve my previous comment, I’ve fixed the issue. ANd delete this one :) And post a how-to for nginx :D :D :D well that’s it. Thanks!

    I like the plug-in but find 6-10 emails a day about changes in the cache files annoying. Is there some way to turn that off? I? entered “njn/wp-content/cache/*.*” in the exclusion list but that is being ignored.

  • Zunaid Kazi

    I wonder if this is a known but or not but I’m having an issue with multiple pre-existing users ending up with the same user-name (but different ID) after installing the plugin and removing the admin user and changing user ID = 1.

    Is there a way to block visitors from a specific country? I don’t really care about visitors from Asia, and there are a lot of probes coming from there. I’d rather not deal with them.
