How to: Disable all your plugins in a second

November 27, 2008 at 10:03 am

Sometimes, for exemple when you have to upgrade your blog, you need to disable all your plugins. Depending to how much plugins you’re using, it can takes a lot of time and be kinda boring. Happilly, I got the solution to this problem, with a simple recipe to disable all your plugins on a second!

First of it all, login to your phpmyadmin and choose your WordPress database. Once done, click on the sql button to open the sql command window.

Then, simply paste the following sql command and execute it.

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = '' WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins';

That’s all, you have disabled all your plugins. Does anyone got a tip to re-enable them in a second?
