    Using the plugin "Better WP Security" I changed the admin's name to something else and, as it said, I had to log in again. But when I tried, all I get is a white screen. No error messages, just the white screen. I can't access the Dashboard.

    Anyone else know what causes this?

    Forgot to mention that I'm using version 3.4.8 of BWPS and the latest version of WordPress.

    I tried deactivating all plugins via phpMyAdmin and it didn't work (followed the instructions here: http://perishablepress.com/quickly-disable-or-enable-all-wordpress-plugins-via-the-database/).

    I still get just the blank white page.

    Here's what I've done -- in order -- to try to resolve the issue (to no avail):
    1. Deactivated all plugins
    2. Deleted the BWPS plugin from the server via FTP (based on idea that once deactivated it can be deleted)
    3. Removed the BWPS tables from the database (the "lockout" and "log" tables)

    Still get just a white screen.

    Finally, per this thread (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-better-wp-security-locked-out-as-soon-as-i-activate-plugin?replies=7) I deleted the "bit51_bwps" from the options in the database. Still not fixed. :(
