Fatal Error: Someone Please help.

I tried switching my theme from one to another but received this error after:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Envato_Protected_API in /home3/save/public_html/wp-content/themes/pile/wpgrade-core/vendor/envato-wtl/class-envato-protected-api.php on line 12

I don’t know what to do. I can’t access my site anywhere doing anything in any way. I never edit my site outside of wordpress online. I just need to get back and have access again. My site is not linked to dreamweaver or anything. What do i do?

You can try the following;


You can use FTP to access to the following path of your WP site:


Then remove the active theme folder (that gave you the error message). In this case, it is “pile” theme. Now try opening your site again.

Hope this helps!

If you have cPanel access you can do the same as suggested by @UXbarn. The problem could also be caused by new plugin installed or updated.
