So I thought I would be proactive and install Better WP Security plugin to block "Brute force" attacks on login's last night.
All seem to go well (installed on 4 sites) - this morning I noticed an email notification on one of the sites that it had been locked down for thirty minutes so I look and now I can't get to the backend of my site, so I tested the other sites and all but one I cannot login and get to the backend?
I enter my login credentials and all it does is refresh the screen and go back to my homepage(s).
On one of my sites (that is a test site) I went into the FTP and renamed the plugin's folder and now I can get into the backend - but not sure that is the proper way to get out of this situation?
The only settings I allowed in Better WP security was 404 blocking and brute force attacks and Away mode (but that time as passed)
Any advice would be appreciated.
