Local WP Live Link Helper obligatory plugin in website

Hi, I have a problem with a client’s site that is already live.
Among the plugins I found your plugin among the mandatory plugins but it cannot be deleted. Will anything happen to my site if I delete it? Where can you delete it from?

If you click on the hyperlink for the Visit the site for the plugin where does that go? Can you paste that here? I’m not familiar with this plugin it might be something from an older version of Local.

Are you able to access the site via SSH to deactivate/delete the plugin with CLI? What about SFTP?

Hi Nick, if I click on the hyperlink “visit the site for the plugin” it go here https://localwp.com. How can I deactivate from SSH or SFTP? Thank you

Hi @Roberta

Where is the live site hosted at? They may have some documentation for connecting to your site via those methods.

Also what version of Local are you utilizing?

I checked with the team and this is a normal mu-plugin that gets added when you’re using the Live Link feature in Local (I honestly have never noticed it before!) but it should get excluded when a Local site is getting pushed. Can you tell us more about where the site is hosted and how you migrated it there?

Hi Nick, thanks so much for the support. The site is currently hosted on lowhosting. When I imported and exported the site I did it manually by downloading databases and files and put them into the hosting. Do you think this is a file I can delete without problems? I actually don’t remember the version I used when I created that site, consider that around February I published the site online.

Hi @Roberta

Thank you for the clarification! You are absolutely safe to delete this. Because of your manual migration workflow if Live Link was left enabled this may not have gotten wiped naturally like it would be if the site was pushed with Local Connect. It won’t break anything on the site to remove it so you should be good!
