I am trying to access the Magento Connect Manager and I can't get to it. I keep getting this: "Access is locked. Please try again in a few minutes."
I was trying to see if there was an update to the POSIM Evo Linker because it isn't linking the items to Magento.
Update: Still can't get to the connect manager but that wasn't the cause of the failing linker.
Starting from Magento 1.9.3, there is new functionality introduced to prevent bruteforce attacks. If you go to your var directory, you'll notice var/brute-force.ini.
Modify brute-force-bad-attempts-count value to 0, and you should be able to log in again. Also, it will probably reset by itself after lock time passes.
Yeah I guess the lock time expired, I was able to get into it this morning.
Great. I thought that it probably now works for you, because you've posted question yesterday.
