How to solve this error:

As you can not log in from your admin panel you an not do any changes on your prestashop back office. So you have to log in on your hosting / cpanel account .

Then go to YourDomain.com/config/xml

And delete all .xml files that create problem.

After this step you can log in to your admin panel . But, you still have to fix the addon update or module update tools to stop this problem occur again and again.

For this you have to go to :

YourDomain.com/classes folder and edit tools.php file as follow:

protected static $is_addons_up = FALSE;     
public static function addonsRequest($request, $params = array())
{ return false;
if (!self::$is_addons_up) {
return false;


That's all.

Enjoy your shop working again now.
