Sometimes a wordpress plugin has just had enough of you. It happens. And what you’re often left with is a just an error page and a broken site. It can be scary, but fortunately it’s easy enough to fix by deactivating the plugin without having to just spend hours googling the specific error codes.
Disable via SFTP
So here’s what to do:
- Login to your site via SFTP (you really shouldn’t be using FTP!)
- Navigate to /wp-content/yourpluginname
- Rename yourpluginname to yourpluginname-disabled
You’ll now be able to login to your wordpress installation, where you will be able to delete and reinstall the affected plugin. Phew!
