Support » Plugin: Login Security Solution » [Plugin: Login Security Solution] Password loop – can't get to dashboard

  • Resolved rainydayz


    1. Site’s under attack (or has been)
    2. Admin login, which succeeds, displays front page
    3. Click on dashboard link at top of page
    4. Takes me to login page
    5. Back to step 2.

    So I can’t use my admin login to actually get to the dashboard and do anything, even though I am logged on.
    Luckily I have another admin user with a different login name which I can use.

    Hi Rainydayz:

    Please copy the error messages that get produced on the login page in step 4 and paste them here. Similarly, please provide copies of any email messages you received from this plugin.

    What other plugins are you using?

    What happens if you log in by browsing directly to <domain>/wp-admin/ (which will redirect you to wp-login.php) instead of going directly to wp-login.php (which renders the home page upon logging in)?




    Sorry for the delay, I had to leave, I don’t have the problem now unfortunately, I disabled the plugin and re-enabled it which allowed the admin user to log back in to the dashboard.

    Going to wp-admin took me to the login page.

    I got a series of “POTENTIAL INTRUSION AT” e-mails, and also “VERIFY YOU LOGGED IN TO” e-mails. I also received one password reset mail.

    Other plugins related to login I’m using are “Theme My Login” and the “ThreeWP Activity Monitor”.

    All in all not much help I’m afraid – if it happens again I may be able to stay online while the problem is still manifesting itself.

    Hi Andy:

    Do you still have any of the attack/intrusion emails laying around? If so, please forward one of them to me at

    Please make sure you have the latest version of the plugin (0.31.0 at this point).

    Going to wp-admin took me to the login page.

    I was asking where the login page redirects you to after you logged in.

    Mails forwarded as requested. After login I was redirected to the home page – but this is quite possibly because I also use the “Theme My Login” plugin, in which you configure a page to direct to after login.

    (Should have thought of this plugin, but was concentrating too much on security related plugins, my bad!)

    If this happens again, please reopen the thread with the requested error messages.
