The Protector module is blocking my IP address.

The Protector module is blocking my IP address. I entered other addresses for blocking. I have changed the name of the protector directory and can enter the administration panel. Otherwise, after logging in as the Administrator, Protector gives info that "This account is disabled for your IP by Protector.
Clear cookie if you want to access this site as a guest. "
Where can I change it? Delete your IP address so that Protector does not block me?

Re: The Protector module is blocking my IP address.

Protector keeps its list of bad IP addresses in a file names "badips" followed by 6 hex characters unique to your system.

If you are using XOOPS 2.5.9, the "badips" file is found in the "xoops_data/protector/" directory.

In earlier XOOPS versions, the file will be in the "xoops_lib/modules/protector/configs" directory.

Deleting that file, or editing it to remove the line with you IP address should end the ban.
