Hello Tibs85,

Sorry for the problem with the login. Please review it now - you should be able to login to the admin normally now. This was apparently a server-side issue related to your .htaccess file, that has been resolved. Let us know if you continue to have problems.

thanks Arnel -- it's back up. Was it triggered by anything on my end, or a server issue (and if so is it something that can re-occur?)

Hello Tibs85,

It was triggered by an internal mod security rule on the server. These rules are there to help prevent the brute force attacks on WordPress sites. The rule that caused your problem is under review by the systems team. You would not have been able to take action against it. If you continue to have login problems, please let us know and we would be happy to investigate the matter further.
