Help! Locked out of WP admin after adding passwordprotected page! (3 posts)

    I'm locked out of WP admin after adding simple password protected page using the standard feature "Password protect page".

    Now when I try to open my url http://www.mysite.com/wp-admin

    I get instantly redirected to my passwordprotected page, and although I can log in to that page, I'm locked out of admin!

    I hae cleared all cache's in my browser. Tried from a different computer. But no! I'm locked out :(

    Please help, panic is creeping in...

    Could try using phpMyAdmin to blank out the post_password field in the wp_posts table for that particular post/page.

    Always good to have a backup of your database before messing with it.

    Hi Michael, thanks for the advice. I do have backups, but make them to infrequently... :(

    I believe the problem was a plugin (bbPress or theme my login).
