Wp-admin connection refused

I tried too many times with a bad password to log into wp-admin. I’m now getting “connection refused” when I try to log into wp-admin. I assume this is a protection mechanism.

I went to phpmyadmin and changed my password. Is there a way to turn off the “lock out” through phpmyadmin or elsewhere? If not, is there a timeout for the lockout or do I need to contact dreamhost support?


Looks like your repeated attempts triggered an automatic protection against brute Force attacks. The block is removed after some time but you can ask support to accelerate the process.
