Locked Out From WordPress Admin?


How are you all? I have a WordPress site and I have been locked out of the admin dashboard.

  • It is not a user permission issue. No user can log in, and I have also checked the permissions are ok by looking in phpMyAdmin

  • A couple of months ago, I installed the default free SSL certificate muy hosting provider offers. And it worked fine until a few days ago

I have disabled the certificate but that did not fix it. I also uninstalled and rolled back everything the plugin Really Simple SSL does, including executing the “force-deactivate.php” the plugin includes.

I also tried disabling all the plugins, the theme, replacing full WordPress folders in the FTP, restoring the database, etc.

I believe there is a strange redirect after logging in. I get bounced back to the home page when I try to log in, seemingly logged in but unable to enter the dashboard. It either says I have no permission, or it requests the password again. See the image below:

I’m logged in, as you can see in above’s image but can’t open the dashboard. Whenever I click on My site name it redirects me back to the site.

I need to gain back access asap. @GulshanKumar @BihariLala @itsbhanusharma please help


  • Is it your own website?
  • You may be subscriber of that site, instead of admin.
