    FTP to your website and first change the permissions of your root .htaccess to 644 file permissions and see if that is the problem. If you still cannot login to your website then delete the root .htaccess file in your website root folder.

    Some hosts do not allow you to lock your root .htaccess file with 404 file permissions, but do allow 444 file permissions for the root .htaccess file. Other hosts require that you only use 644 file permissions for the root .htaccess file.

    Other very common problems that will cause this:

    Also make sure you are clicking the AutoMagic buttons before activating BulletProof Modes.

    BPS setup steps:

    1. Click the AutoMagic buttons
    2. Activate All BulletProof Modes.
    3. Setup complete.

    I have been on to my web site host and they said that my file is set to root .htaccess to 644 file permissions.

    I'm not happy as I put Bullet Proof on my web site to protect it.

    This is going to cost me a lot of money to get someone to fix it if they can.

    Nope this is really simple to fix and should take about 5 minutes. Delete your root .htaccess file and delete the wp-admin .htaccess file. Log back into your website. Delete the BPS plugin. Go to WordPress Settings >>> Permalinks and resave your permalinks. Simple, easy and fast.

    Also if after you delete the BPS .htaccess files and you still cannot login then you will need to contact your Host and ask them to allow/whitelist your IP address. I have seen Hosts all over the World blocking WordPress login pages (and other php apps login pages, Joomla, etc etc etc) by IP address to help with the ongoing Brute Force Login attacks that have been going on now for 8 months.
