Buggered my site with SSL (2 posts)

    Hey guys,

    I was fiddling around with SSL on my site and now the whole site is inaccessible :( The changes I made where to create a self signed certificate on my Plesk panel with my web host (or though I believe the site was still working after this) then I installed WordPress HTTPS plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-https/). After installing I changed an option to force SSL on admin login and something else. After this everything became unreachable. I can't view the maintenance mode that is installed nor login. The site URL is http://www.crimsonitsolutions.co.uk. I manually deleted the plug-in from the server but no luck (Or though I didn't think this would achieve anything as the damage had been done). Is there anyway I can retrieve my site?

    Any help much appreciated :)

    - Try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed or some plugins stick around in cached files. So by renaming the folder, you break them and force them inactive).

    -If that does not help, you may want to contact your hosting provider.
