Cannot login to backend of Joomla 2.5

Post by jas19500504 » Tue May 02, 2017 12:35 am

I have been using Joomla 2.5 for quite a while now.
All of a sudden when I try to login to backend Administration, I see the following message:

JAuthentication: :authenticate: Failed to load plugin: plgauthenticationloginone

What does this mean?
I have a feeling my hosting provider might have done some upgrades or other things that may have caused this but I cannot be sure.

Not being able to login as administrator means I cannot do anything to add, delete or change on my website.

I also checked the frontend login and got the same error message.
This means my customers cannot login which is a disaster as I could lose many members to my site.

Please help urgently

Thanks

Joe

For some reason my plugins folder had been deleted.
Fortunately for me I had a backup.
When I uploaded the plugin folder, all works now.
Weird?
