Datawrapper: Mails not delivered

I use my own instance of DataWrapper (An open source data visualization platform helping everyone to create simple, correct and embeddable charts in minutes. http://datawrapper.de) to quickly build some data visualizations.

For some strange reason, my login’s stopped working and I didn’t see the forgot password working for any of the users. I didn’t find a quick work around and I kept trying many trial and error methods.

Some how I jumped into a conclusions that I should install plugins of datawrapper again as this issue was never found to have been discussed elsewhere.

This is what I did inside the datawrapper installation directory. It went ahead and installed a plugin called email-native.

#php scripts/plugin.php install “*”
Re-installed plugin core-vis-options.
Re-installed plugin d3-bubble-chart.
Installed plugin email-native.
Re-installed plugin export-image.
Re-installed plugin export-static-png.

Strange as it should have been installed while I had installed datawrapper first time as I don’t remember facing any issue verifying my accounts earlier.

Now, I was able to reset the passwords for my account and login to regain access on all charts I have built so far.

Next Steps: Need to figure out if there has been any automated updates as we have few cron’s running with datawrapper and keep track of plugin errors and installation issues.
