    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the prompt response!

    I followed these steps and was able to get in. To summarize, here’s what i did.

    1. Logout using the link you gave.
    2. clear cookies and restart browser
    3. moved plugins directory to a temp directory and created new plugins directory.
    4. logged in, and it worked.
    5. reverted plugins directory and able to see all plugins again

    Do you know why this happened? Was it related to one of my plugins? In that case, how do i prevent this from happening again?

    I’m guessing it was a plugin, but don’t know if you really can prevent it, unless you identify the offending plugin…
