[Resolved] Fatal Error

  • I am also getting the same error.

    Got it working again, I had to manually go in and turn off all plugins via the database, then I could log in to the admin panel. Updated newsletter plugin and turned on all the plugin I had on and everything works fine.

    Was trying to figure out how to do the same. How do you turn off a plugin? I can delete or move, but not sure how to simply switch off.

    Try this. Have a backup!!!

    Go to your cpanel and click phpMyAdmin, click on the name of your database typically in the format of [cpanel_username][wdrp][#] click on the table wp_options find the row active_plugins, click on the pencil icon to edit this value.

    You will see something similar to the following, depending on the number and type of plugins you have installed:


    That entire array of code represents every active plugin on your site. Thus, to quickly disable all plugins without using the WP Admin area, highlight the entire block of code, cut it out, and paste it into a safe, offline text file. After removing the code, click the button to save your changes and that’s it.

    All WordPress plugins are now deactivated (yet still installed, and with all plugin options intact).

    You can go through and reactivate all the plugins except the one that was causing you problems.

    Hope that helps

    The solution is to delete the plugin folder. Sorry for the inconvenience. Don’t play with database, that could scramble your blog.


    Is there anyway I can do so without losing all of my subscribers since my last export 3 weeks ago?

    Your data (subscribers and settings) are NOT affected by deleting the plugin folder. WordPress fully delete it every time you upgrade.


    Deleting plugin via FTP, re-entering WP, then reinstalling the plugin fixed issue without loss of any data.

    Thanks for your effort.
