If you run a Magento backend website and you get an error such as this:

“Access is locked. Please try again in a few minutes.”

Here is the solution to your problem. FTP into your /public_html/var folder

and then edit this file

brute-force.ini

One you open the file you should edit this line:

Brute-force-bad-attempts-count = 0 (change whatever number that is in place of the zero to zero)

And then save and clear the cache on your Magento backend and re-login again.
