    I cannot log in to my site, whenver i try to go to login page it just takes me back ot home page.

    I think it has something to do with better wp security.

    you can try to deactivate the security plugin by editing your database:
    In your database, access the "wp_options" table, there you will find a line that has the "option_name" = "active_plugins" you can edit this line to deactivate any/all plugins you want.
    Hope this will help you fix your issue

    Absolutely no need to go into the database. Simply ename or delete the plugin folder by FTP. See Filezilla and FTP Clients « WordPress Codex

    Yes, that's another way(probably better) to do it, just wanted to edit my reply, thanks songdogtech.
