Disregard. Should be able to recall a question, though.

Hello Jreneeb,

Sorry to hear you were having problems with the Wordpress login. The answer for that question can actually be found in the Lockdown Wordpress using .htaccess article in step 9. It's about 15 minutes. It's a common issue due to the security required to prevent the brute force attacks on WordPress login pages.

Our apologies on the difficulty in immediately finding an answer. We're always looking for ways to impove the support center search, so your input is always welcome.

If you require any further assistance, please let us know.

Thank you for the speedy response. I had read that article, but it was taking longer. Didn't know if I misunderstood the 15 minute reference. It was resolved quickly though. Thanks again!
