Memeber Locked Out RRS feed

    Hi,

     I couldn't find the answer to this I am currently unable to look throught the code to find the answer myself so I was hoping someone could help. My client has locked out their administrator account from failed passwords. Is there a timer where they just have to wait for it to come back, or do I need to get into the database and manually unlock it?

     Thanks in advance.

    Check your membership settings in the web.config...

    The best thing to do if you already hosted the website is to

    1.use the Users.aspx page that manages your accounts to unlock the admin account (You will have to move the page outiside the admin area to be able to get to it)

    2.Go to the DB and manually fiddle with the admin account and there is a field somewhere that tells you the status of the account..and change it to active from locked

     

    An admin is just like any other user...the default memebrship settings is....

     

    enablePasswordRetrieval="false"

    enablePasswordReset="true"

    requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"

    requiresUniqueEmail="true"

    passwordFormat="Hashed"

    maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="99"

    minRequiredPasswordLength="4"

    minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0"

    passwordAttemptWindow="10"

    passwordStrengthRegularExpression=""
