Fatal error that won't allow me to login to my wordpress.org site dashboard (2 posts)

    I have a wordpress.org site: http://www.sufijournal.org/wordpress.

    On Sunday I tried to reinstall a twitter widget (I think it was WP Twit Widget but not 100% sure) that I thought I had deleted but it turned out I hadn't and it immediately gave me this fatal error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare widget_twitter() (previously declared in /home/content/41/6631241/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-twitter-sidebar-widge/twitter_wid.php:132) in /home/content/41/6631241/html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/magazine-premium/widgets/widget_twitter.php on line 41

    Now my site won't load at all (just produced a white screen with the fatal error text) and I can't login with the login details I usually use for that wordpress.org site anymore - wordpress doesn't recognise my login details - so I can't access the dashboard to delete the conflicting widgets.

    I would be really grateful of any advice/assistance and can provide more details if needed.

    FTP into your site (or use whatever file management application your host provides) and delete the wp-content/plugins/wp-twitter-sidebar-widge folder.
