Login LockDown
Clear lockdown from shell backend (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I recently installed Login Lockdown and cannot remember the username and password for my WP panel. I got hacked the other day so I changed my usual username and password, and prompty forgot it. On that note, I have been locked out several times now for not remembering my credentials and the forgot password link doesn't send me anything for me to reset.

    Is there a way to clear the Lockdown through the shell so I can log into the admin panel?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    edmar, if you delete the plugin via ftp it will disable itself, and you can always reinstall it later. Alternatively if delete the entries corresponding to your ip from wp_login_fails and wp_lockdowns it would be the same as if you had made no attempts to log in.
