I can’t log into my WordPress Dashboard

Last Updated on April 14, 2020 by Next Century

Are you having issues logging in to your WordPress website?

This example has a WordPress plugin installed called WP Limit Login Attempts

There are a number of reasons why you are not able to log in to your WordPress websites dashboard.

WordPress login disabled

If you are getting this error, it is because there has been to many login failure attempts on your account. WordPress will disable your account for a specified amount of time. This is caused by someone or something putting in the password incorrectly to many and is used to prevent your site being compromised by “brute force attacks”.

To resolve this issue, either someone who has admin access will be able to let you in or you have to wait the specified amount of time to get back in.

Username or password is incorrect

Lets face it, we all have far to many usernames and passwords and because of this it is very easy to forget your login details. As long as you remember your password, you are able to reset it by going to the login page and then clicking the lost password button. If you have tried resetting your password and still unable to login, we advise to contact your WordPress administrator.
