Support » Fixing WordPress » Help! Locked out of WP admin after adding passwordprotected page!

  • Hi,

    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).
