Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » Ithemes is giving me 403 Forbiden

  • I’ve changed the login address with Ithemes and everything was working fine until recently when I started to getting 403 Forbidden error when I try to login to my website.

    Front end is working fine, but my login page is blocked.

    First time when it happened I was able to login when I disable AdBlocker in my browser. Now I can’t login to my website and it is whitelisted with Adblocker, tried to disable my Anti virus that didn’t help, disable all the plugins with ftp that didn’t help. I can’t login to my website!

    Login adress looks like this when it’s blocked:

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • To restore access, temporarily add the line below to the wp-config.php file:

    define('ITSEC_DISABLE_MODULES', true);

    Once logged in, disable the iTSec plugin Hide Backend module. Then undo the change in the wp-config.php file.

    To prevent any confusion, I’m not iThemes.

    Thanks, I’m kind of stuck now, it redirects me to 404 page. I can’t even access login page. Your suggestion didn’t help

    I can access the login page fine now where I couldn’t earlier …

    So my suggestion certainly helped.

    Antivirus was blocking me, I disable it for now
