Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » Enabled Away mode, can't login to admin

  • I enabled the away mode, set the times from 6 am to 10 pm, now I can’t get to the wp-admin page. How do I disable the away mode, is there something in a database to change or does it write some code to the htacess file? I haven’t found anything, I am locked out, Please help me with this so I don’t have to delete the plugin and start over.

    Many things you can try:

    1. Temporary rename or delete .htaccess file.

    2. Open .htaccess file and remove the Better WP Security section.

    3. Delete the plugin folder.

    4. Also try this http://bit51.com/fixing-better-wp-security-lockouts/

    All options above aren’t step-by-step item, you can choose one of them or combine some of them.

    I ever had my site get locked, and using the tricks above I managed to fix it.

    BUT:
    – I do not guarantee, don’t blame me if thing go worst.
    – Remember to backup before you try (.htaccess, plugin folder, database).

    Good luck.
