    I was working on a site for someone and I think I locked the account out. Is there any way of unlocking the site?

    When I go to cPanel® the page times out. Is there any way to get this back up?

    How to fix this really depends on what you did ...

    Most likely you tripped the security and blocked your IP

    Are you completely locked out of the server or just Cpanel?

    If you can get into SSH, you can do a lot to straighten things out.

    If you can't reach the server, you may try connecting via a proxy such
    as KPROXY - Free Anonymous Web Proxy - Anonymous Proxy or from another computer and see if you
    are able to get in.

    If you are completely out of luck, do you have a console interface with
    the data center / server provider to reboot the server?

    Turns out I was locked out by the server, so the company that was hosting the site had to un-block my IP address.

    Thanks for the reply though.
