WordPress problems?

July 19, 2013

One of the most amazing features of WordPress self hosted is the automatic updates of plugins and core with a single click.

On the last update, all of a sudden when accessing the admin back end, I got an error:

Fatal error: Exception thrown without a stack frame in Unknown on line 0
Well, that meant that an update of any of my plugins screwed something, and I was not capable of doing anything in the backend.


To switch off all your plugins from the database.

Go to phpMyAdmin

Run the following query to see the active plugins
SELECT * FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins';

Back up your DB, just in case, or at least this table.

Then kill them all!
UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = 'a:0:{}' WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins';

Now you can enter on your back end and start activating plugins one by one.
