I'm locked out of my WP wp-admin area and my phpMyAdmin area. Is there a workaround?

Keywords: WordPress - Google Cloud Platform - Technical issue - Other
I was updating a plugin (WP Fastest Cache) but I mistakenly leave the page while it’s still updating. Now I can’t log back into the wp-admin area. I tried to log into the phpMyAdmin area via SSH so I can delete the plugin but the phpMyAdmin area page too kept loading unending then it’ll show the error

(This site can’t be reached took too long to respond. ERR_TIMED_OUT)

So, I don’t have access to my WP admin area anymore, please help.

Thank you!

I tried to run the sudo /opt/bitnami/bnsupport-tool but the following error is what I got and it got stuck in that last part for hours. What should I do please?

Thank you for your help!

I increased the RAM of the instance by first stopping it and then increasing the Machine Configuration.

Here is the code generated by the sudo opt/bitnami/bnsupport-tool:


Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi @taiwodare,

Thanks for the bnsupport bundle. I see MySQL is using a lot of memory in your server. It can be related to your plugins. Can you try to disable all plugins using the wp-cli tool and try to log again into your website?


wp plugin deactivate --all
