2011 Honda Civic manual trans won’t shift when car is running

when my car is running and i try to shift into gear, i cannot put it into any gear (only if i turn it off i can put it into gear). i have a standard transmission (not automatic).

Your clutch is failing. Either the clutch pedal hydraulic system or the pressure plate. Either way it needs service right now before it damages anything else.
