How to clear admin failed login attempts (as admin) ?
I reached the point where I only had one more login attempt allowed as admin. I want to reset admin back to normal login attempt allowance. It’s annoying only having 1 attempt allowed. I updated wp_options ‘UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = ” WHERE option_name = ‘limit_login_lockouts’ LIMIT 1;’ as advised on some help pages. However, this makes no difference to admin’s allowance. I just need to know what other fields to change and to what? Incidentally I cleared the lock log, so it says ‘no lockouts yet’. This hasn’t made any difference to admin. I stil only have 1 attempt left. I also did a delete plug-in and re-install via dashboard. No change. I havem’t yet tried deleting the login attempts directory. But this doesn’t seem a very satisfactory way to get back to normal.
