Disabling a WordPress Plugin when you can’t login

Disabling a WordPress Plugin when you can’t login

So, recently, I upgraded my Recaptcha to Version 3 from 2 on one of my WordPress sites. But stupidly I didn’t update the keys in the Recaptcha fields before logging off the site. But, I needed to check Recaptcha before I logged in.

So, I needed to disable the plugin without logging in.

To disable the plugin I logged into my cPanel, going into the file manager then navigating:

public_html/wp-content/plugins

OK, find the extension you want to remove, in this case just an example, I am going to deactivate loginpress:

Simply rename the directory to something like this:

And hey presto, you have disabled the plugin without logging in.
