Tagged withsyntaxhighlighterDrupal

A situation can arise where you've enabled a module through Administer > Modules (Drupal 4.7 and below) or Administer > Site building > Modules (Drupal 5.x and above), but then because of a fatal error of some kind cannot get back to the modules administration screen to disable it (sometimes you cannot access any pages of your site at all) -- only the error is displayed and nothing else.
