Can't Login to wp-admin (4 posts)

    I have previously searched and found a similar issue, but with no result.

    My problem is, when I try to login to wp-admin I am told my password is incorrect (even though it isn't).
    I have reset the password through the password reset, no luck.
    Re-named the plugin and themes folder, no luck.
    Tried multiple browsers and multiple PCs, no luck.

    However, if I try to login from my home (or work) PC. I am given the issue above, but when logging in from my mobile or 3G, it will allow me to login. Yet, when I try via WiFi, I have no luck.

    I did think this may be an IP related issue, but I still can't login when plugins are deactivated, or at work and I can gain access from where I'm "cookied" in from a previous login.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    hi itsdaniel0 - I'm having the same issue, though I can't log in from anywhere. Have you had any luck in finding a fix?

    @shmeeden - it's better to start your own thread on these forums - as it's actually unlikely that your issue is the same.

    First you should check with your hosting company as many have tightened down login due to recent attacks on servers of WordPress sites. See: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/brute-force-attacks-and-wordpress?replies=2

    @shmeeden Shortly after posting this,I stumbled across some rogue code snippets in my source code. I'm still not too sure where this came from, but as a precaution, I re-installed WordPress, backing posts via Tools>Export, first.
    It was a little hassle, but did solve my issue.

    Although as @WPyogi mentioned, it could be down to the attacks. My hosting company had blocked all access to wp-login.php for a week or so, just to be on the safe side. So it could also be that, perhaps ask them or look around the announcement page.

    Finally, have you taken a look here?
