Quickly Disable All WordPress Plugins via phpMyAdmin

Before beginning, be sure to have a backup of your database. Then, login to your database using phpMyAdmin, go to the wp_options table and go to active_plugins. In that field remove the contents and click save. All plugins are now disabled! This is great for tracking down a plugin which is locking down or slowing down your WordPress website. Another way to perform this if necessary is to go into your wp-content folder and rename /plugins to plugins-old/ and create a new empty plugins and then log into your admin area.
