    Ok guys, I already tried asking people about this problem in other forums, but it has been 2 weeks and I didn't get any working solution. So I really hope someone can help me up with this.

    When I'm trying to open my WP dashboard : "mysite.com/wp-admin" , I'm getting this error message:

    Code:
    [B]Fatal error: Cannot redeclare pluginAuth() (previously declared in /home/maz001/public_html/wp-load.php:66) in /home/maz001/public_html/wp-load.php on line 73[/B]
    Already tried deactivating all plugins and themes using FileZilla. Still can't access to the dashboard.

    Sorry if I'm posting this on wrong section, please move this thread to the right one. Thank you.

    try a core reinstall. ie replace all the files inside the wp-admin and wp-includes with a fresh copy of wordpress downloaded from the official site. it might fix it. Make sure you dont delete the wp-contents folder

    Thanks for your reply,
    So as long as I dont delete the wp-contents folder, all the contents won't be deleted right?

    Im not sure what do you mean by deactivating themes and plugins using filezilla, there's no way you can..

    Following are possible fix,
    #1. Browse to your database and deactivate plugins by removing database value
    path---> database-name / wp_options / active_plugins (probably on the page 2) then remove the value and hit "GO" (best to saved it on notepad for reference)

    #2. Delete all folder inside wp_content/plugins (make sure to back-up)

    #3. Replace Wordpress file,
    -- check current wordpress version by accessing readme.html
    --download same version from wordpress archive release
    --delete all wordpress file from your server except wp-config.php and wp-content folder
    --upload the new wordpress file you just downloaded except wp-config.php and wp-content folder


    P.S back-up database and wp-content before doing anything. :)

    Good luck

    I had this similar problem once while trying to update 2 plugins at once, I deleted that particular plugin that causes the problem via ftp, then It's resolved.
    The another solution to this problem is contacting the hosting provider, they might help you what to do

    Try to deactivate all your plugins or simply re-install your wordpress. Use the default theme where I assume you did not make any customization at all.

    I will try all the options you guys give later, and post back the solution here, just in case someone have this same problem as mine. Thanks.

    I read it somewhere in WP support. It's not actually deactivating it, I just rename the 'plugins' folder to 'plugins-old' . So it's like uninstalling all the plugins I guess. Anyway, I will try the option you give later. Thanks!


    My site is on autopilot, so I haven't open in around 2 weeks, and suddenly this happen lol.

    Yeah, I already tried deactivating the plugins, and switched to the default theme, but still not working. By re-install it, do I lose any of contents?
