    - I'm not lock out due to to many 404's
    - tried to use the procedure described here Recovering Admin and got "you have not the necessary rights.."

    Would like to try to disable "away mode" if its possible?

    Or something else to get access again.

    Hans, I would recommend resetting database entries to ensure that the plugin has new settings. I've noticed that database conflicts cause various issues with this plugin. So deleting old database entries and activating plugin fresh, fixes most issues - especially with login/redirect issues.

    I've outlined instructions here.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Victor,

    thanks. Saw your advice already during scanning the forum for answers.

    I've got sync and BackupBuddy running as well. Is it save to just disable and reset just the iThemes Security plugin?

    Bernd, leave Backup Buddy alone, simply follow the guide/link that Viktor provided. Worked a treat for me!
