How to deactivate a WordPress plugin using FTP client

If you ran into trouble and noticed that your site is inaccessible, you may want to deactivate the WordPress plugin using FTP. Since you can’t log in to your admin panel, you may use the following instructions:

Step 1: Log in to your FTP server using your FTP client

Step 2: Move to wp-content/plugins

Step 3: Find one of the folders:

  • disable-dashboard-for-woocommerce
  • disable-dashboard-for-woocommerce-pro

Rename the folder(s) by adding .old to the folder name:

  • disable-dashboard-for-woocommerce.old
  • disable-dashboard-for-woocommerce-pro.old

After saving changes, please try to access your admin panel again. You should now be able to log in to your site normally.
