I guess you were able to fix this Ronald, since your site is back to normal now.
Let me know if I was looking in a wrong place.

Ronald, you mean this problems is on another site?
Have you enabled DEBUG MODE ( http://www.oxwall.org/forum/topic/4661) ?
What errors did you get after enabling it?

I would also like to uninstall the blogs plugin, but when i go to do it it thinks it is the photo plugin as it says :

Before uninstalling photo plugin we have to remove all existing user photo content. This may take awhile. That is why we will put the site to "maintenance mode" and activate it back upon completing the uninstall.

So am afraid to uninstall in case it deletes all user photos...what should i do?

Backup your site first.
adding the congif "uninstall_inprogress" would be the easiest way to fix that.
In any of the active plugins init.php file, add the below lines and refresh any page.

if ( !OW::getConfig()->configExists('blogs', 'uninstall_inprogress') )
    OW::getConfig()->addConfig('blogs', 'uninstall_inprogress', 0, ' ');

This will add the config back to system and after that you can retain or remove it.

+1 Purusothaman. Thank you for helping.

>>So am afraid to uninstall in case it deletes all user photos...what should i do?

Thank you for pointing at this. It is just incorrect text (one and the same language text key was pasted for the uninstall process of all plugins).

You can go ahead and uninstall Blogs plugin. Photos will not be deleted.

We will change the wording within one of the next releases.
