 I set what I thought at the time was an IP filter that banned a specific IP range, however, when I walked away and came back 20 minutes later I was logged out and had an error saying my IP was not valid to login to the superuser account. I'm assuming I set a filter to only allow the IP range I input.

I have tried setting another user as the superuser in the database, but I still get the ip error.

Could someone help me out with this or point me in the right direction to learn myself? Please and thank you.

you can open the IPFilter table in the database and delete the "bad" rule (you should have a rule with a * for IPAddress and 1 for RuleType -this allows all IP's). Note: IP address filtering will not allow you to lock yourself out as it validates the current IP - this would suggest you IP changed so please take care.

Thank you for the response.

I did what you said and deleted the bad rule, but it didn't change anything. The invalid ip still showed whenever I tried to login as a superuser.

I went ahead and disabled the ipfilter from the db which allowed me to log back in. The only thing is whenever I enable to ipfilter again, I still receive the invalid ip on login even though I haven't added anymore filters. It's really not important now that I can login, I just don't know if this will cause errors elsewhere in the future. I'm using version 07.03.02 if that matters at all.

Again, thank you for your help.
