    Hi
    I have been using this plugin for a short while and usually before I actually buy/offer money, I need to check it is doing what it say.

    I like it a lot BUT … every time I have a change of IP [dynamic – my ISP is changing IPs lately] and I have set a whitelist for logins etc. I get locked out and this is not the big problem, as it does its job, I simply alter htaccess and I login.

    The problem I am finding ‘when’ this happens and needs fixing, I find WP-Security totally ‘off’ and in need of setting it up again as if installed now!
    It happens ‘every time’ I get blocked and I add my current IP to htaccess and the htaccess gets renewed again and I have to add my redirects again and again.

    What is happening? All others are working fine, site too.

    I prefer not to mention website [for security!]

    Any help?

    Hi,

    every time I have a change of IP [dynamic – my ISP is changing IPs lately] and I have set a whitelist for logins etc.

    If your host keeps changing the IP address, it would be better not to use Whitelisting feature in the plugin? Instead use Rename Login Page under Brute Force.

    I find WP-Security totally ‘off’ and in need of setting it up again as if installed now!

    Have you created any backups under WP Security -> Settings? You can backup the following files so that later on you can restore them again if something happens.

    Backup your database
    Backup .htaccess file
    Backup wp-config.php file

    Have you also tried to export and import the plugin settings under WP Security -> Settings -> Import/Export?

    Let me know if you need more information or help.

    Kind regards

    Hi
    Thanks for reply.

    I guess this might be a ‘security’ feature of WP-security to reset it, but for what reason.

    By resetting it lowers site security.

    Anyway, yes I did backup but not used it.

    I will try it

    Thanks

    Hi
    Sorry for not replying, was busy and I forgot what happened – therefore I cannot comment on it, but anyway it has now been working fine.

    Thanks for your time
