Limit Login Attempts
Locked out myself (2 posts)

    I've been using this plug in successfully for months, but then today I was writing a post, when I hit save draft, the login box came up and said I was locked out for too many unsuccessful attempts - which is crazy because I was already logged in and using it and had not made any attempts!

    I've been trying to understand on here the instructions for amending the files on the server to get myself back in, but I'm not really used to those files and need more of a step-by-step.

    Is there anyone here who can give me some easy instructions to get myself back in. I had set the lock out to 120 hours, so its not really a case of waiting!
    Thanks

    Ok I thought of an easier way. I simply took my laptop to a friends house and logged in there and I was able to reset the lockouts from within the LLA settings.

    But still, very odd and very annoying how that happened!
