I installed and activated a plugin and now I the website won’t load and I can’t get into the admin page. What can I do now to fix if I haven’t got a backup?

Connect via FTP and find the plugin folder ../wp-content/plugins and simply change the name of the offending plugin folder. This will disable the plugin allowing you to access the website again to uninstall the plugin.
