Plugins – You have been redirected too many times and the homepage is not loading

Thanks for the help.

Apparently the WordPress site was hacked… I found 2 FTP files that Kecker was trying to use to increase the FTP quota in the root folder, which I deleted. I also changed all wordpress files except “wp-content” folder.

Right now, except the homepage, other pages of the site are loading. Every time I try to access the homepage, I get the error, “This page isn’t working… redirected you too many times. Try clearing your cookies. ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS.”

1- I cleared browser history several times, set it to “All Time”.

2- I ran WordPress folders and files permissions via ssh to make sure it is not a folder and file permission issue.

3- I ran a database repair via SSH, which was completed successfully.

4- I disabled all plugins

5- Clean .htaccess file

But, when I tried to use wordpress repair tool, I get the error message saying “define(‘WP_ALLOW_REPAIR’, true);” have to add. In the “wp-config.php” file, which I have already added before trying to run the URL, for example, “https://mydomainname.com/wp-admin/maint/repair.php”. At this point, I see that wordpress is not able to read the “wp-config.php” file, so when I try to call the repair line from the “wp-config.php” file I also get that error are getting. ,

Any suggestions?

Thank you
