Justo to say I’ve followed your tutorial to remove the aiowps entries.
But it seems that they weren’t definetely deleted, as when I get the plugin reinstalled all the information came back.
In the Step 3 of this tutorial, the two “Options Safe to Delete” are the same. You mean “aiowpsec_db_version” and “aio_wp_security_configs”, right?
Hi Gracinda, thank you for pointing that out. I have updated Step 3 ) in the documentation above.
If you deleted all tables and other entries mentioned in this documentation and you still have an issue, then there might be other settings in the plugin that creates an entry in your database. Can you please confirm this and report back.
Thank you for your response.
I’ve tried again and I found out that besides the 2 entries in the Options, there was one more “aiowps_temp_configs.
With this last one deleted I was able to reinstall AIOWPS.
Thank you again
Thank you gracinda, for reporting back and providing another entry in the options table.
Worked, thank you!
I am glad it helped you.
