Every now and then we get users who find themselves in a tough situation where they need to deactivate a plugin but they can’t log into the WordPress admin dashboard. Peter created a video tutorial covering 2 techniques that you can use to deactivate your WordPress plugins witout having to log into your WP admin.
These 2 techniques will come in handy if you ever find yourself in one of the following situations:
