  • Not sure if this helps. I login to cpanel, go to wp-content/plugins/wordfence and rename it. Then login, then rename wordfence back again.

    @grumblenz, thanks for your suggestion. I contacted GoDaddy and they were able to go in and deactivate my plugins. Next, they helped me change my admin password so that I could remove CLEF and and I had a “redundant” security plugin installed and they suggested it may have inadvertently caused a conflict. I removed that as well. I apologize I didn’t have an opportunity to update my status on this issue until now due to some family medical issues, business meetings and wind-generated power outages in my area.

    Again, thank you very much for taking the time to offer an alternative resolution.

    Have a great evening.

    I hope my reply helps someone else!

    I changed the login screen url. Someone kept trying to break in, so I made it harder for them. I used the login meta button and that brought me to the screen I needed.
    I moved from a right to a left sidebar, and I did not add the login meta button on the new sidebar.
    Now I cannot figure out how to get back in.
    It is for one of my subdomains, not the primary domain.
