Is your IP banned from your own WHMCS?
Who can remember all their passwords all the time? I have a password manager, and I still don’t get it right. I use the WHMCS software to manage client hosting and such, and so sometimes I get locked out of my own system because I’ve tried too many times to log in!
Here’s how to un-ban yourself:
- Log into your cPanel or website database administration panel
- Enter phpMyAdmin
- Look for a database ending in
- Browse that database
- Browse the table named
- Refer to your WHMCS ban notification where it says your banned IP address (such as “Your IP 12.345.12.345”)
- Find the entry in the
ipcolumn matches your IP address
- Click the
Xin that row to delete the ban
- Re-access your WHMCS ban-free!
Maybe some day, my password management applications and my browsers will play nicely together. Unlikely, though 🙂

Whmcs replaces the ban after you try to login once.
Thanks you, very much…
for some reason, this takes two tries — the first time it doesnt work..
Thank you very much!
You’re welcome 🙂
Zack, it’s people like you who make the internet a better place. This is a great tutorial and it saved my ass. Thank You! FYI: it worked on my first try. I password reset after the unbannify.
