How To Fix A Locked Out
WordPress Admin Screen Issue (5 Solutions
Explained)
Realizing that you are locked out of your
WordPress admin screen could push you in a quite
stressed situation. You are not able to make any
changes to your site that could have resulted in
more intuitive design and better user
experience. So today we thought to enlighten you
about how to resolve the locked WordPress Admin
Screen issue in five easy ways.
2
But before we come to that, I would like to pass
certain information to you about our w eb design
company in Los Angeles - SFWP Experts. Being a
prominent agency based out of California, we are
capable of resolving most problems your site
might be going through. Lets say you are
experiencing lesser traffic, low sales or even
poor customer relationships, we have solutions
for each of them. All you need to get rid of your
problems is to contact us and share what your
site is facing issue with. With that covered,
its time to delve into the title of this content
and know what to do when you are locked out of
your WordPress Admin Page.
So, without any further ado, lets get
started. 5 Solutions When You Cant Admin
Section
Access
WordPress
1. Try Changing Your Password Using
phpMyAdmin Most of the time people are locked
out of WordPress admin page just because of the
additional tools they deploy on their site. For
example, you could get caught in such a
situation if you have installed a plugin that
allows only a limited number of login attempts.
Lets say you're trying to login to your
WordPress admin account but unfortunately you
forgot its username or password. Now if you keep
making efforts to enter your admin area with a
wrong username or password you will be locked out
of the WordPress admin section after a few
times. So, the question is what to proceed with
if stuck in such a situation? Of course, you can
try resetting your password from the admin login
screen itself.
3
In case it doesnt work out due to certain
reasons like not having access to linked email
id or not receiving an email for password reset,
you always have a choice to reset your password
using phpMyAdmin. Here are the steps you need to
take for resetting your password through
phpMyAdmin Step 1 Log into your web host and
look for your site on the Sites page. Once you
have found that, click on it to go to the
Overview screen and then look for the link that
will take you to your database. Step 2 Since we
are performing this task using phpMyAdmin, first
you need to start it off. Once you have done
that you have to search for your database on the
left sidebar. To do that, you need to expand the
labels first by hitting the Plus () symbol
there. Just when you do that, you will be able
to see all the tables that your WordPress
database includes. Here you have to find
wp-users table or anything similar if you have
edited your database label. Step 3 After you
have opened wp-users table, you will have to
click on the Edit button present near your
username. Step 4 After you have done that you
need to do a couple of things such as edit the
information in the user_pass field with your new
password and then select MD5 from the function
dropdown. Step 5 Now the only thing you need to
do is save your changes by clicking on the Go
button and then trying logging into your site
again. You should be able to enter your
WordPress admin section and manage your site
using the available options.

  • In case you dont like to touch your WordPress
    settings yourself and hire any professional for
    the job, get into conversation with o ur
    Wordpress d eveloper experts team. We will help
    you regain the access to your WordPress admin
    screen and perform internal changes that you
    want.
  • Use An FTP Client To Resolve The WSoD issue
  • Here the WSoD represents White Screen of Death
    thats usually a blank white screen with no
    message about the error. This could make it hard
    for you to identify the issue and fix it
    properly. Still there are ways to get rid of
    this problem and we will let you know about it.
  • To resolve the WSoD problem, you need to use a
    FTP client (short for File Transfer Protocol)
    and then do the following
  • Check whether or not your themes and plugins are
    functioning properly
  • Increase your PHP memory limit
  • Activate Debug mode to figure out whether or not
    it displays an error when logging into your
    site.
  • If doing all the mentioned above doesn't get you
    a solution, you can talk to your web host or the
    technicians of our Los Angeles web design company
    to fix the issue. Once we receive your request
    about the problem you are experiencing, its our
    duty to squash the bug at earliest.
  • Check The Information Contained In Your Database
  • In the pursuit to fix the locked out WordPress
    Admin Screen issue, the third thing and the most
    important thing you need to do is check if any
    error is persisting in establishing a secure
    database connection. If your findings shows up
    an error, any one of the following things may
    have occurred

5
  • The files contained in your database may have
    corrupted
  • Your site's server may have run into issues.
  • The wp-config file might not have the correct
    database information
  • So the first thing you need to do here is to
    check whether or not your database details are
    correct by going to wp-config file. Again, to do
    that you will need to take a FTP tool in use.
  • Once you are inside your server, open the file in
    your text editor and verify the following lines
    at the top of your screen
  • Technically, your hosting account should have it
    on the main page and then you need to make sure
    that they are absolutely correct. If it isnt the
    same as shown in the picture above, you will
    have to correct it somehow. For help, you can
    reach out to your web host and inform them about
    the problem you just encountered. In addition to
    that, also tell them what you did so far to
    resolve it so that they can have a good idea of
    the situation.
  • For some or other reasons, you are not able to
    gain access to your WordPress admin area,
    remember we are available to listen to your
    websites problem. Its not just the WordPress
    Admin Screen issue we fix but as a prominent
    Wordpress website design agency we also deal with
    every single problem WordPress websites show up.
  • Retrieve Your Admin Rights
  • At some point of time you may get stuck in a
    situation where you would be able to log into
    your site but cant use the admin functions. In
    such a case, any of the two things may have
    occurred
  • Your admin account would have been deleted from
    the records.

6
  • The site owner would have taken back your admin
    rights.
  • So, to resolve this issue all you need to do is
    create a new user profile. For that purpose, you
    will have to use phpMyAdmin once again. Look for
    the wp_users table among all the labels and then
    go to Insert tab once inside.
  • Here you have to fill in a large number of fields
    like ID, user_login, user_pass and the rest.
  • Have a look below
  • ID Enter any number of your choice and note it
    down for future reference.
  • user_login Type in your username in the box.
  • user_pass Type a password that you like, and
    then open the drop-down menu of the Function
    column to select MD5.
  • user_nicename Here you have to enter a nickname
    that sounds good because other people will also
    see it.
  • user_email Simply enter the email address you
    have.
  • user_registered Feed todays date.
  • user_status Keep it 0 (zero).
  • display_name You can have your nickname here as
    well.
  • Once you are done, save your changes and then
    move to wp_usermeta table. Here youll have to
    fill in following information in the Insert tab

7
unmeta_id Again dont type anything
here. user_id Put exactly the same ID you
entered in the last two steps. meta_key Type
wp_user_level here. meta_value This time enter
the value as 10. Once all things are done, try
logging in with new credentials. 5. Find Out If
There Is Any PHP Error And Fix It Sometimes
website administrators also face problems with
the WordPress Admin page accessibility due to
silly things. The point Im trying to make here
is that you may find yourself in a locked out
situation out of your WordPress Admin Screen if
you have made changes to some files sometime
ago. To this, you can say an unintended problem
creation that often most people do. Let me tell
you that the problem can be as silly as missing
a semicolon. So, its better to find out the
problem and fix it ASAP. Note that you will need
to use an FTP application again for this
purpose. Conclusion It doesnt matter what
pushes you into a problematic situation. If you
are locked out of the WordPress admin screen,
you will definitely feel frustrated.
Fortunately, there are more than one solutions in
the market to fix this issue, so you should not
be stressed about the same anyway. However, even
after trying hard you are not able to regain
access to your WordPress admin section, we
recommend having a word with your web host about
the same. You should soon find a solution and
again exercise your admin rights. We hope you
like the solutions we outlined above and if you
