    If you have enabled the cookie-based brute force prevention feature then please read and watch the video here:

    If you feel you need to restore the .htaccess file then see this:

    How to Restore the htaccess File When Using the All in One WP Security Plugin

    Yes, I watched and read. I removed All in one from the htaccess file and was able to get in. Then set it up again, then was able to log in. However a couple of days later the same thing happened, could not login just directed to the main page of my website. WHY does this happen?

    I also have WP Better security installed as well and I keep getting file change warnings as follows:

    Depending on your site’s setup, you have to be careful to ensure that you include “www.” if necessary or leave it out when typing your URL with the secret word.
    So in other words, you would have to try one of the following:

    www.yourdomain.com?yoursecretword=1

    OR,

    yourdomain.com?yoursecretword=1

    Also I forgot to add that you should check that your browser has the cookies enabled.

    This

    “www.yourdomain.com?yoursecretword=1”

    is a critical piece of information. I spent over an hour searching and trying different solutions

    .htaccess restore did not work btw. “question mark” secretword=1 is what it took. I don’t understand why …wouldn’t the secret word be enough?

    I think same problem, I have change url address for login page.
    On the first time setting (3 days ago), its able login using that address.
    But today I want login but always direct to homepage.

    I have try follow tutorial to wipe out all the firewall (edit .htaccess) still not able login using wp-login.php (page not found).

    Any one can help me ?

    Thanks
