    So I am guessing someone has tried to hack my site because my main admin account has been locked out for the next 24hrs. .

    Is there a way to bypass this time frame?

    Thanks

    This is much simpler than you think.

    Do you have access to your cPanel?

    Nice, just a simple procedure must be done. Get into the WP database and alter your password to a new one, but to do this you have to have hash selected where it says password, otherwise it won't work. You're going to alter the row of the table for 'wp_user'.

    Sure, use phpmyadmin for it, and do what I said.

    As I told, you gotta get into the database to do the trick there. If you dont know how to solve thru the way I told you, just add me on skype: binarykoder

    I won't charge nothing for this.

    I have "login-lockdown" and did not even think of that, so I changed the name of the folder but the problem is still there.

    Download the folder to your computer using FTP. Then delete it from your ftp account. And check again.

    Just tried and had no luck, but after looking at the users I have, I remember a few that I made for the hell of it and can login as them.

    So I am going to look for a way to make that user an admin with PHPMyAdmin and see if that works

    Found it out, but to do so I just edited a user I had on the site.

    In the usermeta I changes one value level to 10 and then in ***_capabilities I changed to "a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}"


    Thank you all for the help!
