Error in system plugin fancybox

Post by c14agi » Tue Jun 09, 2015 6:34 am

Hi after update I got this:

Fatal error: Call to a member function isSite() on a non-object in /homepages/23/d471434651/htdocs/inchcape/plugins/system/fancybox/fancybox.php on line 41

I see, fancybox is causing the error so to work around, I want to deactivate the plugin.
Problem, I can't open the Extension Manager, because the backend gives me the same error.

How can I deactivate it by hand... Using Text Wrangler. Which file dod I have to look for?

in phpMyAdmin look in plugins table and set the plugin to "0" from "1"
