Important information

On some servers, when you install or update Pinpoint Booking System, the process can be very slow. This is caused by WordPress function dbDelta() which creates and updates your database.

We recommend to be patient and allow the installation to finish. If something happens during it and the database is not created, please use the following steps:

  • Step 1 - With your FTP program connect to your web server.
  • Step 2 - Go where your WordPress files are, to folder wp-content/plugins/dopbsp for PRO version or to folder wp-content/plugins/booking-system for FREE version.
  • Step 3 - Open and edit the file dopbsp-config.php.
  • Step 4 - Set constant DOPBSP_CONFIG_INIT_DATABASE value to true @line 17.
  • Step 5 - Go to WordPress administration area and refresh the page. It does not matter on which page you are.
  • Step 6 - Set constant DOPBSP_CONFIG_INIT_DATABASE value back to false.

You can also use the Repair database & text tool.


The server crashed

When installing or updating the plugin, due to the large number of processes that run only when the plugin is installed, it is possible that your server will crash.

One solution is to increase the memory allocated to PHP. WordPress provides instructions on how to do that.


Installation failed

If the booking system did not install properly, or you have problems with WordPress administration area after installation, please write us on the Support Forum and we will debug the problem for you.

The problem is always caused by incompatibility with another plugin, theme or the server is not configured correctly.
