Access Denied on WPAdmin

  • Answered
I get an error when trying to go to my WordPress Admin screen:
Access Denied
You are attempting to access a forbidden site.
Consult your system administrator for details.

What is going on? Is there a way to reset something in the backend like CPanel to fix this?

Hello accessplanet, Thank you for your question about WordPress admin login difficulties. It is possible that a rule in your .htaccess file is forbidding your access. That is usually what this message indicates. These rules are usually inserted by intention, but sometimes a plugin can cause it. Our WordPress troubleshooting guide provides some steps you can follow to deactivate plugins to see if that allows your access back. Best, Christopher M.
