Can’t Log on to Admin Dashboard after Plugin installation

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello buddies,

After installing the Active-Directory-Authentication Plugin, I can't seem to log on to my Administrator Dashboard and consequently, I can't deactivate the Plugin itself.

I get the following message:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function ldap_connect() in /home/xxx/public_html/ on line 105

I have tried the instructions provided but to no success. I need to deactivate the plugin to access my site administration area.

Do you, guys, know how I can do this? Please reply if you do.

This would be an issue related to Word Press. The reason why you're getting that particular error is your PHP environment has no LDAP support. In order to do that, go to this link and follow the instructions in getting compiling LDAP client libraries : get and compile LDAP client libraries.

To deactivate the plug-in itself, you can need to manually delete it. To do that, follow the following steps:

  1. Go to your server's file manager
  2. Look for the wp-plugins folder
  3. Search for the Active-Directory-Authentication Plugin
  4. Delete it

You should be able to access your wp-admin after. Hope that helps!
