    The most helpful and straightforward. Thank you!

    Is there another plugin you recommend to limit login attempts now? Limit Login Attempts says it hasn’t been updated in over 2 years.

    Seems to me that the best solution for the self-lockout problem is prevention. I use LastPass to generate and track secure passwords (there are other utilities that may be just as good or even better, but I like LastPass/XMarks).

    So far (more than 2 years of using Limit Login Attempts), I have never locked myself out of any of my admin accounts.

    Hi Syed,

    Great Tutorial.
    The first one is easier. But one should know every possible way of doing a thing. The second one – using MYSQL Query is new for me and I learned it from here.

    Thanks for the posting this.
