ERROR resolution: Access from your IP address has been blocked for security reasons. Please contact the administrator in wordpress.
It may happen that one day, if you manage a wordpress site with a protection plugin All In One WP Security , you find the following error displayed in a log or elsewhere:
ERROR: Access from your IP address has been blocked for security reasons. Please contact the administrator
If you find yourself in this situation, don't worry, I have known it too. In this post we will show you how we solved this problem and at the end suggest the possible causes of this problem. Of course with reference to my personal experience. Let's start:

We have found two solutions to this problem, all related to the security plugin All In One WP Security. To solve the error in a gentle way you have to follow the next step.
-> go to wp security
-> Blocked ip address
-> in the list, deactivate an ip address by clicking on “ unlock" or equivalent.
It is possible that the ip address located in the blocked ip list is yours. The plugin mistook you for the hacker of your own site.

The second method is more “wild” I would say. It simply consists of:
-> deactivate the plugin All In One WP Security.
This is the first thing we did to discover the plugin responsible for our inability to connect to the wordpress site. Then we reinstalled it before unblocking our address.
Now if you want to know the causes follow the next section.

The causes of the All In One WP Security wordpress plugin error
As often, the causes can be multiple but in this section we will talk about the causes of our problem.
What caused our ip to be blocked was our repeated attempt to connect unsuccessfully to one of our clients' wordpress. To put you in context, one of my clients contacted me because his accounts were no longer working on his site. In our test with ours which is an administrator account, we had the same problem.
With several failed login attempts, our site had banned us both by ip address. We solved the problem using the solutions listed above. I had a dashboard open by default so despite the problems I could quietly act on the plugin settings.
Another cause can come from someone around you who tried to log into your wordpress account. So be careful.
