I have disabled all of the Magento extensions from System > Configuration > Advanced. Now I can't see anything in the Configuration tab. I have attached the screenshot below:

What is the issue? How I can solve this?

  • Have you tried to sign out and sign back in? Jan 2 '17 at 16:03
  • Damn. It's even worse. Now I can't see the login page. Can you please inform me what to do? I am a newbie in here.

  • Did you check your error logs? Normally a white page means that there is an error somewhere. If you fix the error in the logs, you should be fine. Jan 3 '17 at 7:07

You should enable the modules again, i guess you disabled some needed modules.

Go to your database and execute:

SELECT * FROM `core_config_data` WHERE `path` LIKE '%advanced/modules_disable_output%'

This will show you where the output is disabled (value = 1). Make sure that the value for advanced/modules_disable_output/Mage_Admin is 0. Clean your cache afterwards.

If that doesn't work try to enable more modules until it works again

  • Is it possible to enable the modules from the ftp under app/etc/module folder?

  • When you change the setting in de administration, Magento saves that setting to the database. So the database setting will overwrite the setting in the app/etc/module folder. You don't have access to the database? Jan 2 '17 at 16:18
  • Sorry. Currently I don't have the access to the database. It's my client's site :(

  • The connection details are in app/etc/local.xml. Try connecting. Else write a script that connects to that database and enables the modules again. Be carefull of course Jan 2 '17 at 16:25
  • How to do that? I found the local.xml file. Can you please help?

Go to ‘/app/etc/’ directory and open the file ‘local.xml’. 1 Here you can see all the data u need: see host, username, password and the dbname nodes in the xml structure.

  • Yes, I found that. But the problem is I don't have cpanel access. I only have the access in ftp and Magento Admin(Which is blank now). Is there any other way to active the necessary modules from the ftp?
