    ok, same problem as when 5.0 update happened (aka, see

    2 websites, hosted at 1&1, one of them has no plugins active, the other site has wordfence, and neither site will allow access to any admin pages (ie, dashboard, posts, themes, etc).

    And no, it is NOT a cache issue (browser, nor any cacheing plugins). Cookies have been deleted, too.

    I don’t suppose you remember which plug in was causing the issue do you?

    This is another users topic from more than 3 months ago, we’ve since released a new version of WordPress, and any issue is unlikely to be the same.

    In light of this, we kindly ask that you make your own topic if you are experiencing problems at this time.
