    Can't login, can't see my site at all (i get "...due to too many attempts to open a file that does not exist. You may login to the site to manually release the lock if necessary."). What should I do, so many work done, I am quite scary whether all will go to hell. Please, guide me...

    The IP belongs to a known WP hacker. Block all access to it in your .htaccess file. Either add the following or edit something similar already there to the same effect.

    <Limit GET POST PUT>
      Order Allow,Deny
      Allow from all
      Deny from
      # add more 'Deny from' lines to block more bad IPs

    I've never seen a message like yours before, I'm guessing your host put it up as a load limiting and/or security measure. If so, you probably need to log in to your hosting control panel to release the lock.

    While shutting down your site is an extreme measure, it may have prevented your site from actually being hacked.

    Don't know how, but I managed to enter my site and immediately banned this IP. Also I have activated IP black list from the plugin "Better WP Security" as more of its anti-hack functions.
    Nevertheless, thank you guys for your kind attention, wish you happy hours!!
