    Hi,

    this may or may not be related to the recent plugin update. I have used this excellent plugin for months and haven't changed any settings recently:

    I can only login (backend hidden) when I rename the better-wp-security plugin folder. If the plugin is active, I am just redirected to the main page. Redirect works normal when the plugin is deactivated.

    I checked the MySQL lockout table and could not find my IP in there. Where else should I check?

    Thanks,
    Alexander

    so your saying wp-content does not work unless you rename the plugin folder or what you renamed it to only works when you renamed the plugin folder??

    Let me first say that it appears to be working now as before, without me doing anything - so perhaps it was a caching issue?

    Anyway, in case you are still interested: when I tried to login to get to the backend I did never see the login page, but was forwarded to the main page of the domain. Only after I renamed the folder better-wp-security in the plugins folder to better-wp-security.disabled, I was able to login.

    Even if it works now, I would still be interested in possible causes.

    Thanks,
    Alexander
