Let’s say that your super WordPress site has been running without issues. Suddenly, it happened to me: one of them was not working, and worst, it didn’t allow me to access my WP-admin site. Boom!

Due to the nature of plugins, I will check this entry in the future, I’m sure. So, here is the fix.

To fix it, search in the WP database, in table options, for an entry called ‘active_plugins’.

Once you got it, update values
a:1
to
a:0

If you have more than one, you will likely to reduce the number by one.

After this action, it deactivated all my site plugins. Not big deal as there were quickly activated.

I hopes this helps in you case you are in emergency, as I was. Cheers.
