PHP Script In Block Crashed My Site & Database!

In some rare cases, a php script you attempt to use in your php blocks may crash your Database, meaning your whole site. In this case, you will need to manually delete the block you created from your database.

For phpMyAdmin:
Go to: "phpMyAdmin Control Panel > Database You Are Using > Structure > smf_tp_blocks > Browse > Title Of Block You Wish To Delete".

Problem solved.

If you cannot access your database, contact your host and ask them to remove the title of your block, which will be your "title" row from your "smf_tp_blocks" table. For example: If the name of your database is "myDatabase" and the name of your block is "test", ask them to remove:

Quote
Title: "test" from the "smf_tp_blocks table" in "myDatabase".
