[resolved] Self Lock out (4 posts)

    I have gotten myself locked out, and the IP whitelisting doesn't seem to work.

    Right now, I have an hour's wait until I get unlocked.

    Any suggestions on what I can do with the .htaccess to allow access?

    If you are locked out as a result of the lockout feature, then this has nothing to do with the .htaccess file because this lockout mechanism works via php.

    The only way to get back in if you absolutely cannot wait until the lockout expires, is to deactivate the plugin manually via FTP.

    It's locked me out as well!

    I made one failed login attempt on my site (missed one letter) and it's gone into lockout. It tells me to Log into my sites admin panel but clearly I can't do that.

    If the lockout is just one hour, I can live with that tonight but would have no idea how to deactivate using FTP if I had to. Do you give instructions somewhere?

    Please see the following video:
    (fast forward to 10:01 to see the instructions about how to deactivate using FTP):
