[Resolved] Limit Login Attempts

    I am using this plugin and many hackers try to access my site so I change the setting of limit login attempt to the hardest level. Now even I am not able to login into the site as this plugin locked my IP.
    How to reset this plugin’s data so that when i install this plugin again then it will have no data regarding history of my site.

  • Hi pawanpepz,

    1. Log in to your site via FTP and either rename or delete the plugin.
    2. Log in to phpMyAdmin and go to the wp_options table.
    3. Look under the heading called option_name for limit_login_lockouts and delete it.

    If you want to clear all associated data simply delete all rows that start with limit_login_ There are several of them. You can then reinstall the plugin.

    Be sure to make a backup of the database first in case something goes wrong.
