Disable WordPress Plugins via the Database

There are times when there is some problem in your plugin that you have installed in your site and your site goes blank. In this situation you will not be able to log in to the WordPress Admin area to manually disable all of the plugin. In this situation you can simply use the database to disable or enable all your wordpress plugins.

Step 1: It is highly recommended to backup your database before your work on any database command.

Step 2: Login to your database using phpMyAdmin (or whatever), Click on your database and click on the SQL tab and enter the following SQL query:
UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = ' ' WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins';
This query will disable all the active plugins.

Hello. My name is Sakin Shrestha, and I am a technology entrepreneur from Nepal. I am passionate about helping this sector grow, for many reasons. The technology sector creates jobs for many young Nepalis who would otherwise migrate to foreign countries. It lets Nepali professionals develop skills for a fast-changing global workplace, and compete at a high level with anyone, anywhere in the world. If it grows, it will provide a viable career option for many young Nepalis, and help us reap the benefits of a global economy.
