WHMCS is an all-in-one client management, billing & support solution for online businesses. Sometimes public IP of users might be blocked in WHMCS, in such cases, we need to lift the IP ban manually rather than waiting for years to get the block lifted by itself. Let us see the steps to remove blocked IP addresses in WHMCS.
WHMCS only allows three unsuccessful login attempts from an IP address by its default configuration.
After the third failed login attempt, the local IP address will be blocked on the server for this incident. Usually, the removal of blocked IP addresses from the database happens in a predefined interval of time.
If you want to remove blocked IP addresses instantly, please do the following steps:
Step 1: Log into the cPanel for your WHMCS installation
Step 2: Click on PhpMyAdmin under Databases tab.
Step 3: Select WHMCS’s database.
Step 4: Browse the table “tblbannedips.”
Step 5: Click on tblbannedips and search for the banned IP address.
Step 6: Click the “Delete” button.
That’s should do it.
Please try to log in once again. Hopefully, everything should be fine.
