    Hi I need help, a client installed this into her site. Now she only gets 500 errors the whole time. Tried to remove it from from the plugins directory but no luck.

    I would have told her to read this support thread and she never would have.

    Can someone tell me what to do to remove it?

    It is messy and I am sure there is a better way to do it. But, I just destroyed my .htaccess file and then at least I was able to get into the admin dashboard.

    If you take these lines out of .htaccess, you can login again. Also, rm -rf the hide login plugin directory. I'm pretty sure I followed the directions, and even tried it twice, but like others I got the 500 internal server error when I activated the plugin.

    RewriteRule ^wp-admin$ %{REQUEST_URI}/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteRule ^wp-admin/(.*?)$ /wp-admin/$1?%{QUERY_STRING} [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^login/?$ /wp-login.php [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^register/?$ /wp-login.php?action=register [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^forgot/?$ /wp-login.php?action=lostpassword [QSA,L]
