Tell us what you are trying to do? I try to activate WPML without breaking access to the backend.

Is there any documentation that you are following? No documentation, just installed WPML again, after continous problems. Once WPML is activated the backend is not available. Deactivate WPML and the backend is accessible again.
I tried to deactivate all other plugins, but when activating

Is there a similar example that we can see?

I would need to see the detail of the error. You can see how to enable debug logging here:

Go in your wp-config.php file and look for define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);. Change it to:
define('WP_DEBUG', true);

Edit your wp-config.php file and add these lines, just before it says 'stop editing here':

ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL);
ini_set('error_log', dirname(__FILE__) . '/error_log.txt');

This will create an error_log.txt file in your site's root directory. Please send me its contents.
