[Tue Feb 11 04:29:13.680044 2014] [:error] [pid 11724] [client 126.96.36.199:28246] PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare hex2rgb() in \xc8\x1dPbC\x7f on line 17
Maintenance mode was ON and then I attempted to install a new theme. I got cut off before it was made active and couldn't log on any more.
On the server the system was giving errors like above.
I manually removed both the theme and this plugin, then I was able to access the system. I uninstalled this plugin and then I made the new theme active.
I'm not sure where this error came from - it could be from the theme - but now the theme is active and everything is fine so I'm wondering whether it could be this plugin.
