    Hi everyone,

    I've managed to lock myself out my server by getting the password wrong five times.

    I now get an error saying that the server is taking too log to respond when I try and access the server.

    I received and email from LFD on the server saying that it is a permanent block.

    I'm really not too sure what I can do to fix this, can anyone please help?

    Thanks

    Get yourself a new IP - either by power cycling your modem or walking across the road to your neighbour's, and clear the relevant block using the WHM interface for CSF (at the bottom - look for firewall).

    Add your IP into the "allow" list to make sure it doesn't happen again....

    Or contact your hosting company and ask them to remove your IP from the firewall :)
