Wordfence Security
Can't log in front or backend (not IP block) (2 posts)

    I just installed it and now can't get into the front or backend of my site. My IP is not blocked. It just can't find anything. When I go to the home page and click "login", it allows me to enter the user and pass (I then get an email that admin logged in) but on the front end, I get:

    "It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for."

    Per the security recommendadtion, I changed the mysite.com/wp-admin to something different like mysite.com/backdoor

    I am certain that is where the problem is. How do I uninstall the Wordfence if if I can't log into the front or back? Will going into filemanager and deleting the folder work?

    When I click "my account" from the front end, a login box pops up, takes my user and pass, and then DOES show the wordpress menu options (like dashboard), but when I click on dashboard, customize, widgets or menus, that menu system disappears and I have to click 'my account' to get it back.
