Website lockdown – no access to WP dashboard

  • Hi there,

    My site has apparently gone into lockdown, following ‘too many failed login attempts or invalid username’. I think this is because of AIOWPSF shutting it down to a hack, perhaps??

    While the website is still up and running (on other machines), I cannot view the website or access my WordPress dashboard to log into the admin/site from my Mac. So I’m stuck and don’t know what to do.

    Please could someone advise (in really simple steps – I’m non-techie) 🙂

    Many thanks in advance…

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the link – but I still don’t have access.

    I have changed the htaaccess file (restored the backup file), removed all plugins by changing the ‘plugins’ folder to ‘plugins-temp’ (all by FTP) and created a new user through my server Control Panel.

    When I type my URL in, nothing happens.

    Similarly, when I type my URL followed by /wp-admin/index.htp nothing happens.

    I can’t seem to get into my WP dashboard.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks in advance…

    Hi mbrsolution,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Still nothing I’m afraid.

    Any other ideas?

    Hi AliG2, can you share your URL with us so that we can do some test?

    Kind regards

    Sure!

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi,

    I have just used an iPad to login to the WP dashboard for my site, and I can get in and all seems to work fine.

    The issue could then be my MacBook Air, and iMac…. specifically? But then why would I get an email?

    Any ideas why that would be???

    Hello I did try your URL above to display the wp-admin screen and it does work for me on my browser. I am running Windows 7 and the browser I used is seamonkey.

    So you have an issue with your iMac and MacBook Air cache I suspect. Unfortunately I don’t own an iMac 🙁 so I can’t test whether it is an isolated issue with Mac or not. However there must be some settings you can clear in your Mac machine.

    Kind regards

    Hi there,

    It continues… I have flushed the DNS, cleared the cache, tried another browser (FireFox), deleted the wireless network from my settings and then signed back up… and still nothing.

    It is very frustrating. I have spoken to Apple and they send me back to my server provider (my IP is not blocked from there)… so I reckon it must be an issue within my Mac that I can’t identify.

    Are there any Mac users out there with suggestions?

    Thanks for your help Mbrsolution – appreciate your help!

    Best wishes.

    Hello AliG2, this is a long shot but at least it is worth a try. Try the following URL it might point you in the right direction.

    Kind regards

    Thanks Mbrsolution,

    If I find a solution, I will post it!
