This guide is only for Yclas Self Hosted!
There are some times when you either forget or misstype your password. Almost all of the web services that require a login have a specified number of consecutive invalid login attempts allowed. After that number of attempts you are restricted from further login attempts for a certain time period.
If your website is made with the Yclas Self Hosted script then it works as below:
After 3 Failed Login attempts: Login has been temporarily disabled due to too many unsuccessful login attempts. Please try again in a minute.
After 5 Failed Login attempts: Login has been temporarily disabled due to too many unsuccessful login attempts. Please try again in 24 hours.
If you have access to phpmyadmin, there is nothing to worry about! Follow these steps to set login attempts to 0:
- Go to phpmyadmin from the cPanel of your hosting.
- On the database of your website, choose the table named ‘oc3_users’.
- Find the user you want and change the value of the field ‘failed_attempts’ to ‘0’ (zero).
Now you are allowed to login to your website!
