Limit Login Attempts Unblock - Use FTP To Unlock Your Login | WP Learning Lab

To unblock all IPs copy/paste this query:

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = '' WHERE option_name = 'limit_login_lockouts' LIMIT 1;

If you want to unblock your specific IP e.g. 111.222.111.222, then run a query like this:

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = REPLACE(option_value, '111.222.111.222', '') WHERE option_name = 'limit_login_lockouts' LIMIT 1;

The Limit Login Attempts plugin is used to limit the number of times someone using the same IP can try logging into your WordPress site with the incorrect username and password. This is used to fight Brute Force Login Attacks where a hacker tries to guess your username and password using automated software.

This plugin does a great service to webmasters (see more information here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/limit-login-attempts/). But it can also be pain in the neck if you don't remember your own username and password because you can easily lock yourself out of your website. At that point you have two options.

You can either wait until your lock is lifted or you can unlock your admin account via FTP (which is a temporary fix) or via MySQL (which is a permanent fix). This tutorial will show you how to do it via MySQL.

Before you start messing around in MySQL database I recommend that you make a full backup of the database in case something goes wrong. And if you're not an experienced WordPress user I recommend that you don't even attempt this. You can do a lot of damage in the MySQL database.

Now that that's out of the way, let's get started.

The first thing you have to do is login into your hosting account cPanel and then log into the PHPmyAdmin app. In this tutorial I'm using BlueHost, but your host's cpanel should have the same options and apps.

Inside of PHPmyAdmin find the database your WordPress site is using on the left hand side list. If you don't know for sure you can check the wp-config.php to find the name of the DB. Click on the name of the database once you find it.

In the main panel you will see a list of all the tables in the database. Find the wp_options table. If you've changed the wp prefix to something else in the wp-config.php file then find [CUSTOMPREFIX]_options.

Once you have the options table open click on the SQL tab near the top and copy/paste this query to unblock all IPs:

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = '' WHERE option_name = 'limit_login_lockouts' LIMIT 1;

If you want to unblock your specific IP e.g. 111.222.111.222, then run a query like this:

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = REPLACE(option_value, '111.222.111.222', '') WHERE option_name = 'limit_login_lockouts' LIMIT 1;

Run the query and you're done, your block is lifted.
