    Hey guys i need help on one of my website. I can't log in to my dashboard. I'm getting this error when i tried to log in to my http:/mywebsite.com/wp-admin. Btw im using wordpress.

    What happened is that it all started when i updated askimet plugin last 2 days ago and after that i got this error. I've already talked with my hosting and advised me to contact the people who made the plugin. This got me like seriously?

    So any advice from you guys will be appreciated.

    I have an automatic back-up which is scheduled every Wednesday so i restored it like 2 weeks ago on my cpanel and its still the same.

    Disable all the plugins through your control panel and then login. Search google for manually disabling wp plugin, its easy. This often happens when you activate many plugins, so increase php memory limit by editing WP config file to enable more plugins simultaneously.

    I just did all that using myphpadmin and renaming the plugin folder but still got the same error message. I'm afraid to reinstall WP because it might affect the rankings. So if there is another way I would like to try it first.

    Thanks for the help mate. I've already done everything and I still could not log in to my dashboard. But what happened after was there were new pages suddenly added to my website. Like http://www.mydomain.com/www/aboutdiseasesandmore. So i know now my site was hacked. So what i did was remove WP and installed it again and installed a new theme and manually added everything back. Log in to my cpanel and removed the /www folder and so far everything is working back to normal.

    Someone hacked your WP sounds like. If what others recommended didn't help then time to go into your FTP and sort by date to find recently added/modified pages and replace them with the originals or remove extras that were added on. If its not losing too much you may want to consider just a fresh WP install as well.
