I tried to install

I tried to install some plugins for ilenecarol.com and I got the following error
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class OAuthSignatureMethod_HMAC_SHA1 in /home/dh_8kkqpp/ilenecarol.com/wp-content/themes/megamag/inc/libs/twitteroauth/twitteroauth/OAuth.php on line 120
I cant even access my dashboard, the website or anything now

    Hi,

    Can you remember the plugins you tried to installed?

    If any plugin you installed had Twitter functions in it? maybe a social plugin or something, that would be the likely cause of this, as something in your theme also uses Twitter Oauth and the classes are named the same.

    You'll need to use FTP or your servers CPanel filemanager for this.

    Navigate to /wp-content/plugins

    Then delete the folder of the plugin that had the Twitter features in.

    Now try and access the wp-admin again.

    If you can't remember which plugin;

    Navigate to /wp-content/

    Rename the /plugins folder to /plugins-tmp

    Now create a new plugins folder.

    You should now have access to wp-admin again.

    Then it's just a matter of copying each plugin from the /plugins-tmp folder back into /plugins again 1 at a time until the error re-appears. Then you'll know which plugin is conflicting with your theme.

    Hope this helps

      Thank you. I had already figured out how to access my site with ftp and then I started guessing which plugins-- because I did a bulk install -- wont do that anymore. Anyway, the 5th guess was correct and I am now able to access my site again. Comments Plus was the plugin causing the conflict with my theme.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
