I created a How-To guide to assist those who wants to learn how to delete a plugin from the root folder rather than from the plugin page in WordPress.
Why delete a plugin from the root folder you may ask?
There are a number of reasons why you want to delete a plugin from the root folder.
A few weeks ago I received a WordPress Plugin Update which I did as recommended by WordPress, however, I when I attempted the delete the plugin keeps on taking me back to the plugins page. This was a bit annoying.
Another reason is that plugins sometimes log you out of your site, this may cause some issues getting back into your site as and administrator until you remove the plugin from the root folder.
If you are a site administrator that uses an FTP server, it might be easier to delete the unwanted plugins from within the folder and update the site via the FTP program rather than doing it directly from within the dashboard plugin page.
There could be a number of other reasons why deleting a plugin in the root folder is used however I just wanted to explore a few reasons to get you to understand why this guide was created.
I know that these steps seem to be quite a daunting at firsts however if you take the steps that I show you in the How-To guide then you will be able to remove the WordPress plugin with no issues.
