Locked Out of the WordPress Activity Log? Regaining Access

Search Knowledge Base by Keyword

You are here:

In update 4.1.3 of the WP Activity Log plugin we have migrated the plugin settings from a custom table to the WordPress options table.

The migration has been successful in most cases. However, in some edge cases some settings have not been migrated properly, specifically the privileges settings. Therefore if you get an error that you are not allowed to view the activity log, follow the below procedure:

    1. Open the WordPress database using phpMyAdmin or any other database tool of choice.
    2. Select the wp_options table.
    3. Delete the row with the option_name wsal_restrict-plugin-settings.

Once you delete these entries refresh the activity log view. To learn more about the different privileges, refer to the WordPress activity log plugin privileges.
