WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Ok, so I'm pretty sure I'm screwed here, because I do not have a database backup, but I figured I'd ask just in case.

Within PhpMyAdmin, I meant to just go to the wp_options table and empty out active_plugins portion of this table due to not being about to login because of a plugin error. Well I hit the delete button instead of just emptying it out.

Is there any way I can manually add in the active_plugins part of this table?

I tried the repair database thing, but that didn't work.

A missing active_plugins row should not prevent login. I just tested with a brand new 3.6 install. You must have done more damage than just that. –  s_ha_dum Aug 4 '13 at 19:08

Just log back into your admin, go to Plugins, and reactivate each of the plugins you use.

Well that's the issue. I can't login at all –  Anthony Myers Aug 4 '13 at 18:05
    
A plugin needed an update, but we couldn't login or access the site at all, so that's why I meant to go in an empty out just the active_plugins row, but deleted it altogether on accident. –  Anthony Myers Aug 4 '13 at 18:06
    
Hmmmm, ok well their host actually has a backup, so I'm attempting to use that. Fingers crossed. –  Anthony Myers Aug 4 '13 at 18:16
