I've been playing around with D8 and have managed to break a few things I can't figure out how to fix. Most recently, after installing (via manually adding the module code to the modules folder) the Name Field module and subsequently enabling it in the Admin panel, my Drupal 8 instance started throwing fatal PHP errors. No problem, I thought, apparently the module has a bug and I'll just remove it for now. Not so easy. I removed the module folder from my instance, but the errors are persisting.
Not that the specific error matters as this question is not about troubleshooting the module, but here's an example of something I get after removing the module code:
Uncaught PHP Exception Drupal\Component\Plugin\Exception\PluginException: "Plugin (name) instance class "Drupal\name\Element\Name" does not exist." at /srv/http/drupal.protestan.org/core/lib/Drupal/Component/Plugin/Factory/DefaultFactory.php line 87
Is there a way to disable a malfunctioning module without being able to load the control panel? I've looked around but all the hacks for D6/D7 including tweaking the database manually don't seem to apply any more. At the very least the layout has changed and I was unable to find the corresponding bit to toggle. Likewise the current version of
drush does not seem to be able to cope with D8 yet.
Is my whole database borked? Is there a secret URL or other way to load the Admin panel with no modules enabled (i.e. some sort of safe mode)?
