Description

Hi,

Our hosted site ops.livingsocial.com gets the following error message from all users: ERROR: Too many failed login attempts. Please try again in 20 hours.

Nothing happens after that timeframe, the same page exists and no one can actually log in. Is there a way to unlock whatever the problem is to allow access back to all users?

  • Component changed from General to Login and Registration

The error comes from Theme My Login plugin, not core:
https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/theme-my-login/tags/6.3.9/modules/security/security.php#L216

You should be able to remove the plugin via FTP.

Please try the support forums if you need further assistance.
