Failed update and following issue with plugins (1 post)

    I built a blog under WP 2.8.4 for a customer and he attempted an update from WP 2.8.4 to 2.9.1 without deactivating the plugins or making any backup. The update failed. So I reverted to 2.8.4 by manually replacing the files and now the blog works fine except for the plugins. When I open the plugin page in the admin panel, I get the following messages:

    Warning: fopen() has been disabled for security reasons in /(...)/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php on line 70

    Warning: fread(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /(...)/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php on line 73

    Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /(...)/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php on line 76

    These three lines appear for each plugin inside the plugins folder.

    I have manually emptied the plugins folder and these messages do not appear anymore but if I copy a plugin file or folder into it, they appear again. By the way, if I check the database the plugins seem to be deactivated as active_plugins has a value of a:0:{}

    How can I work this out? Thanks a lot in advance.
