Support » Plugin: WP Config File Editor » Unable To Access WP Admin

    After making just one change (that is, enabled the wp cache) I switched to other page and I got logged out immediately.

    Now WP ADMIN page was redirecting to 127.0.0.1

    After hours of searching I deleted the plugin folder via FTP.

    Now here in some support threads you mentioned about backup file.

    I have that backup file but it looks encrypted.

    Please help how to recover now ?

    Hello,

    You don’t need to delete the Plugin as the Plugin already modified wp-config.php file and the error would be presented until wp-config.php file changes reverted back.

    This Plugin is sending Backup link to the logged in user email address.

    The Backup link is valid for 3 days from the changes.

    Please check out the email address that linked to the WordPress used you used to make the changes. Also check the JUNK folder

    Please let me know if you found that email

    Thanks

    I have checked my email with the subject you provided in other support thread. Also searched all recent emails. Even in spam folder but got no backup link.

    What can be done now?

    OK

    There is another get around solution

    Here is the steps:

    1. Please open the backup file through FTP
    2. Please select and copy, the encoded content.

    The encoded content would looks like “return array( ‘content’ => ‘PD9waHAKLy……=’ )

    You should copy all text that start from ‘PD9’ until the ‘=’ symbol

    Your encoded data might looks different, I’m just given an example.

    3. Open your browser and go to https://www.base64decode.org/
    4. Paste the code your just copied into the first text box that lay down underneath “Decode from Base64 format” text
    5. Click Decode
    6. The decoded content would be generated down on the next text box
    7. Using FTP client open wp-config.php for edit and clear all the content inside
    8. Copy and Paste the decoded config file you get from https://www.base64decode.org/ in place of the old text
    9. Save the file

    Hope that helps

    Thanks
