Many users encounter problems when they install many plugins. When they go to their management page (wp-admin) they visit white screen or error. I will try a few methods in this tutorial. It’s Simple to disable WordPress plugins without the need for wp-admin, you can do any of the methods that are easier for you. I have three simple ways to deactivate all plugins, by control panel, FTP management and PhpMyadmin.
Deactivate WordPress plugins through the file managers
The easiest and best way to disable plug-ins without accessing wp-admin is through the host file management. If your control panel is either C panel, or the direct admin it doesn’t make difference. you only need to go to the desired path and give a simple name change to the plugin folder or the entire plugins folder. To do this, first login to your host panel, then open the file manager and log in to your public_html. Then open the wp-content folder and rename the plugins folder. For example, you can change it to disable-plugins. For your convenience, I made an image for you of all the steps needed.
Then, go to your WordPress panel so that WordPress notices this change, and after opening WordPress management because of the absence of plugins in the correct address, all plugins are disabled and then you have to change the name of the disable plugins to plugins.
Deactivate WordPress plugins through Phpmyadmin
One of the relatively complex methods of disabling is phpmyadmin, but in any case, there are people who do not have control panels and have only installed phpmyadmin on their own server, to get started, first log into phpmyadmin and go to your database. Open the wp_options table.
Now look for active_plugins and replace the value a: 1 with a: 0 and then save the changes by clicking the “go” option.
So far, you learned two simple ways to deactivate all plugins in wordpress.
Deactivate WordPress plugins through FTP
If your host server has FTP service, you can apply changes to your files with FTP management software. To do this, you first need to create an FTP account on your host or server and then enter your public_html file with FTP management software like FileZilla or CuteFTP. Then go to the wp-content folder and change the plugins folder to disableplugins. Then log in to your WordPress admin.
After returning to the management, all of your plugins are disabled and you need to change the name of the disableplugins to the plugins and then activate the correct plugins one by one
