What Is the Emergency Recovery Script?
This script/file is a part of the WP Reset plugin, and it works independently from WordPress. It can be used in a variety of situations to fix problems on WordPress sites. For example, situations when it is impossible to log in, when the site simply does not work, or when an error is detected.
In Which Situations Can the Emergency Recovery Script Help Me?
As said earlier, it can help in many situations. Even though some of these situations may seem fatal to a site, Emergency Recovery Script can fix them.
Some of the common situations ERS can resolve are:
