WordPress fix Plugin has crashed my site, can’t login or access FTP

    Plugin has crashed my site, can’t login or access FTP, by Btrail

    Hello,

    A couple of hours ago I made the mistake of installing a plugin called WP Date Remover (https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-date-remover/). When I clicked on Activate, my site crashed. It is now completely inaccessible. I keep getting this message:

    “This page isn’t working
    http://www.my-site.com is currently unable to handle this request.
    HTTP ERROR 500″

    I can’t even access the dashboard to remove the plugin. When I try to log back in to my site, I get the same message as above.

    I’ve tried accessing the FTP (if that’s the correct term) through my browser, but got this message:

    “ftp.my-site.com didn’t send any data.
    ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE”

    So I downloaded the FTP client Cyberduck and tried accessing it through that. I keep getting the message:

    “Connection failed. Connection timed out: connect. The connection attempt was rejected. The server may be down, or your network may not be properly configured.”

    I am at a complete loss as to what I should try next. I’m unable to get technical support from the person who set up my site a couple of years ago as he is not available. I haven’t had any problems with my site until now, although this is the first time that I have installed a plugin.

    I don’t know which version of WP I’m using. I think it is set to update automatically. The site was built using Elegant Themes but I can’t remember which one specifically.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks
