    I deactivated theme my login plugin by accident. Now my login page just has the short code for [theme-my-login]. wp-options has the theme-my-login entry in the database. How do I get wordpress to reactivate this plugi-in so that I can get back to the Dashboard. Doing it via the Dashboard is currently not an option since its not taking me there after login? Logging in via himar.com/wp-admin does not present me the dashboard, just takes me to the site. All help is appreciated. Thanks, Capt Alan

    Go to wp-login.php to login.

    If you have database access, you can reactivate the plugin there.

    I do have database access but I don't know what I need to do/set to activate it. Where is that controlled?

    Look for wp_options > active_plugins.

    You would have to add it to the list, paying special attention to syntax and number increments.

    Something like this -
    i:11;s:35:"theme-the-login/theme-the-login.php";

    I tried and it made things worse so I reverted that change. How can I get login from whp-login.php to activate the Dashboard? Whwere would I be looking for it?

    I have a full SQL backup from a few days ago I am trying to restore but phpadmin tells me there is a file size limit.
