    I am using this plugin and many hackers try to access my site so I change the setting of limit login attempt to the hardest level. Now even I am not able to login into the site as this plugin locked my IP.
    How to reset this plugin's data so that when i install this plugin again then it will have no data regarding history of my site.

    Hi pawanpepz,

    1. Log in to your site via FTP and either rename or delete the plugin.
    2. Log in to phpMyAdmin and go to the wp_options table.
    3. Look under the heading called option_name for limit_login_lockouts and delete it.

    If you want to clear all associated data simply delete all rows that start with limit_login_ There are several of them. You can then reinstall the plugin.

    Be sure to make a backup of the database first in case something goes wrong.
