In phpMyAdmin navigate to the options table. It will be named "wp_options" or a variant of that. For example "wphd_options" or "wpoq_options".

Navigate to page 2 or 3 and edit the "active_plugins"  table. Remove everything in the "option_value" field. Click the "Go" button to save.

You should now be able to access your WordPress administrative area. Once in the admin area you can re-enable the plugins that your site requires.
