    Hi,

    I just installed the AdminCP Firewall add-on and for some reason, it has locked me out saying that my IP address is not allowed to enter. Apparently, ever IP I enter the site with that account, gets saved to my user's IP address log.

    Please, I need this fixed today.

    Thank You.

    Temporary fix... edit your config.php and disable all add-ons, then log into the ACP and either disable or remove the said offending add-on. Then enable your add-ons again in the config.php

    Thank You Tracy so much, I appreciate it.

    One more question, after I disable that AdminCP Firewall add-on, will I be able to access the panel? Will this ruin any data on the site, etc.?

    You should be able to just fine once you disable it in the ACP. If not, you can always disable all ad-ons again in config.php and then log into the ACP and remove that add-on.

    Thank You Tracy.

    One last question. And what if for some reason this method doesn't work? What should I do?

    Disabling all add-ons (if it is a true add-on) should resolve it. If that doesn't work then you need to get with the ad-on author for guidance.

    You do know how to disable the add-ons in config.php correct?
    If not, it's simply adding
    Code:
    $config['enableListeners'] = 0;
    or
    Code:
    $config['enableListeners'] = false;
    Once you don't need it you can just comment the code out by adding the # sign in front of it and saving it.

    So, after disabling it via config.php, then I would be able to re-enable it with-in the admin panel, if I'm able to access it?

    No, disable all add-ons via config.php... disable the specific add-on after you log into the ACP... enable all add-ons back via config.php (comment the line out)... then test to make sure you can still log into the ACP with it disabled.
    If you cannot log into the ACP with it disabled, repeat steps above but instead of disabling it, uninstall that add-on then repeat the enable via config.php and confirm you can log in.
