How to Deactivate All Plugins When Not Able to Access WP Admin

Does your site have an error that is preventing you from reaching your wp-admin? Some sites will ask that you disable all of your plugins which if you do not have access to your admin area can seem confusing to a new user but we’re here to help remove that confusion. In this video, we will show you how to deactivate all plugins when not able to access your wp-admin.

For the first method we are recommending using an FTP, if you do not know what that is you would want to take a look at our article:

We will rename the plugins folder and if you are able to log in after that change you can begin reactivating your plugins one at a time to find which is the root of the problem.

For our second method, we will walk you through how to edit the database through phpMyAdmin including what database table to change and where to find it.

  1. I have done the ftp thing and the myphpadmin thing and I still get this on the top of the site (and cannot get into the back-end): Warning: include_once(/home/content/a2pewpnaspod04_data04/53/41399153/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/wp-cache-phase1.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/wp-content/advanced-cache.php on line 21

    Warning: include_once(): Failed opening '/home/content/a2pewpnaspod04_data04/53/41399153/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/wp-cache-phase1.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/opt/remi/php72/root/usr/share/pear:/opt/remi/php72/root/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php') in /var/www/wp-content/advanced-cache.php on line 21

    Any assistance would be most helpful!

  2. I actually tried to deactivate my particular plugins by renaming its folder as plugin-name-disabled and after that when i tried to enable them by renaming It is not working. I then used the phpadmin and force those plugin to activate. Now they got activated but sometimes wordpress shows 12 are active and 9 are inactive and when i press inactive button it shows 14 are active and 7 are inactive. I just don't know what to do. Please help.
