Not Solved Admin lockout after 5 attempts
#1
Not Solved
Good Morning Team,

It appears when I get this message:-

Your account is currently locked out after failing to login 5 times. You have been sent an email with instructions on how to unlock your account.

I dont get an email most likely my fault Smile

So two questions please where did I miss putting the email in the settings
and how do I fix the problem please

This is the latest version of mybb

All the best from Alan

Hi Alan.

If you have access to your mysql db in your server run this query to reset your password to test

UPDATE `mybb_users` SET `password` = '098f6bcd4621d373cade4e832627b4f6', `salt` = '' WHERE `uid` = 'X' 

Change the X for your user id which if you were the first member will be 1

Then you can try to log in using your username and the test password. if you manage to get in please please change your password to a secure one you can remember.

to change the admin email. go to phpadmin in your server, click mybb_settings and look for "Admin Email" and click edit. then enter your email address and click save.

that should sort everything out.

Thank you for the information, I did try that before, I think the username and password are fine, I even did it via the forgotten password section, it is almost like like a time out setting..

Try this:

UPDATE `mybb_adminoptions` SET `loginattempts` = '0', `loginlockoutexpiry` = '0' WHERE `uid` = 'X';

Change X to your UID.

It should just email the address you have set for your account, do you know if other emails from your site get sent?

Hi there yes I changed the X to Admin

The email works for forgotten password, but the lockout 5 attempts no email is sent...
