    WordPress is a program that runs inside your web server. The admin panel you “always” use to handle the web site is also made available to you by the WordPress program.
    This “WordPress program” consists of several parts:
    – WordPress core files
    – Whatever WordPress theme you may be using
    – Any plugins that are active
    – Hundreds of settings that are stored in the connected database (along with your content).

    It may sometimes happen that an updated plugin or updated theme breaks the whole web site in such a way that WordPress won’t be able to run. That’s exactly what has happened this time. Since WordPress isn’t able to run, we can’t use the nice built-in admin panel to disable the faulty plugin, but need to do this in a totally different way, without using WordPress itself.

    The easiest way to deactivate a plugin when you don’t have access to WordPress itself, is to change the name of the folder where the offending plugin is located. In order to do this, you need to connect to your web server via FTP (file transfer protocol). One of the most popular programs you can use for this is called FileZilla. If you once upon a time installed WordPress with a one-click from your hosting provider, then it’s possible that you never before have even touched ftp. (But if you installed WordPress yourself, then you probably used ftp for that.)

    The connection details for your web server that you need to enter into FileZilla will be somewhere in the information from your web host.

    Once you have connected, you’ll probably see some catalog called /public_html/WOA/wp-content/plugins/ and then change the name of “facebook-by-weblizar” “facebook-by-weblizar2”

    As soon as you have done this (you don’t even need to close FileZilla), try to open the admin panel in WordPress.

    Next, I’d suggest that you delete this plugin.

    Good luck!
