The title pretty much sums up the question I have. If you want background then read on.

My multisite install uses an AD integration plugin to log people on. I just upgraded PHP to the latest version but the plugin that I was using is not compatible. It's actually no longer being supported. I found another plugin to take it's place but since the install is set up to us AD integration, I'm not able to log into the dashboard because I deleted the old plugin. So I'm trying to activate the new plugin to see if it will allow me to login.

I found the active plugins for the main site in the wp_options table but I need to find the active ones for my network.

Can anyone help?

  • If you rename the plugins folder, that will deactivate them all, and you should then be able to log in with a WP user rather than an AD user.

  • Hi @WebElaine, There isn't an active AD plugin on my installation and it still won't allow me to log in. Do you still think it's worth a try?

  • In my experience it's always worth trying deactivating all plugins because this forces WP to resume normal out-of-the-box behavior, including logging in as a normal WP user.

  • @WebElaine I tried it and it still isn't letting me in.

Hello you can query your database. e.g. SELECT * FROM wp1_options
WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins'

wp_1 your First Database in the network, then you can see the active Plugins in these site!

    I'm not sure that this will work because I have a multi-site network. The only plugins that I see in this field are the ones that are active for the main (original) site and not the network as a whole.

  • In each site, the plugins are handled separately, but the first site is the base of the network, so are they network-activated plugins!
