Thank you for contacting us. We apologize for any inconvenience the recent server issues have caused you. Due to an influx of brute force attacks on Wordpress logins, we have implemented temporary blocks on wp-login.php pages to ensure that the server remains stable. Upon restoration of the server, you will want to add the following code to the top of your .htaccess file: Order Deny,Allow Allow from 1.23.4.56 If you need more information on what a .htaccess file is, please refer to this guide: http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/general-server-setup/what-is-the-htaccess-file-and-what-do-i-use-it-for To prevent this issue in the future, we recommend looking into installing the following two plugins to help secure the site: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-recaptcha/ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-login-recaptcha/ If you have any further questions, please contact technical support available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
