I took my WP offline, now it's permanently off line

5 replies
I installed this plug in to do some maintenance on my blog. Well, I left it offline when I went to bed last night, and not it's permanently offline.

When I go to the site I get the "Offline" message. (Obviously)

But when I go to the admin log in I still get the "Offline" message.

I contacted my web host and there is nothing they can do..

Here is the plug in: Taragana | Site Maintenance

Any ideas?! Next step is to contact Taragana and wait for a response.

    1. Try disabling the plugin via phpMyAdmin access. It's stored somewhere in there. Do a search on the name of the plugin.

    If that doesn't work...

    2. Try deleting the plugin via FTP.

    Hope that helps.

    [Solved] If anyone else ever has this problem - Maybe this will come in handy.

    I had to go into my directory /wp-content/plugins/unavailable and edit the unavailable.php file and basically delete everything, which in return made the plugin worthless.

    I then logged in, then went back and pasted everything back into the file.

    So I'm logged in and the plug in still works. (I guess)

    First preliminary question

    Are you attempting to log in with an admins profile? The plugin will no let anyone but the admin login it seems. Second crude solution would probably be to remove the plugin by FTP if all else fails.

    Edit. See you got it fixed.

    I'd get rid of that plugin permanently. Sounds like a pain in the butt.
