    Dear friends here I have solved my website problem this way.

    1. Go to your hosting provider website (example: ww.hostgator.com)
    2. Login to your account
    3. Go to file manager
    4. Go to public html folder
    5. Go to Wp-content folder (inside in public html folder)
    6. Go to plugin folder (inside in wp-content folder)
    7. Rename better-wp-security to any name (example: xyz)
    8. Now go to your website
    9. Login with http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin
    10. Enter your existing username and password

  4. @Muhammad Sadique? Thank youfor helping but please don't ask people to contact you on your site that way.

    If you want to help then please do so here. Also don't post the same identical reply to sixteen different topics. That's considered spamming and is discouraged in these forums.

    Dear thanks for your reply, I will try not do this type of mistake in future. But If I did this only because of on every post (related to wp-better-security) people are confused with same topic problem. I just wanted to help them nothing more. Thanks again

  6. I just wanted to help them nothing more.

    I get that and I do appreciate your efforts. Thanks! But really please do keep the support here in the forums.

    Related to all the problems with this plugin being reported (I don't use any security plugin myself) this WPTavern article may give users encouragement.


    The iThemes authors are an active member of the WordPress community and I'm confident that they will get these issues sorted out.
