I did not make multiple attempts to log into my website, yet my IP address has been blocked from my website by the Limit Login Attempts plugin. A trace back to the agent responsible for blocking my IP revealed it's being blocked by a company called Confluence Network. Their website has an email to correct problems with blocked IPs, but now all these hours later I'm still waiting to hear from them.
Using a FTP client I deleted the plugin's files, but the block on my website remains.
Host Papa's Softaculous offered this plugin as an option to select during the WordPress upload. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT NO ONE ELSE select this plugin option until this problem is fixed.
I can work on my site using my iPad, but you all know how much fun that is!!!!
Anyone who can help with this, please let me know.
