I need some help.

I been using CS-Cart for about 2 years now and have had any issues with admin being blocked because of failed attempts.

BUT about two weeks ago, I got an error trying to access: admin.php

The IP was blocked after 5 unsuccessful logins


24 hours later, I could access it again. Everything was fine. Then today, this morning, I get the same error message.

I work in an office building where 5 of my employees all share the same internet (IP) through a router, so once our IP is blocked, nobody in our office can access admin.php.

1. Why does it do this?
2. Is there anything I can, even in FTP, to reset something... so I can get back into Admin.php?
3. How do I prevent it from happening again?

Like I said, I've had my ecommerce store running for over two years now and I have always had employees on a shared connection access admin.php, so I have no clue why now, it's giving me problems.

Please help.

Thanks.

Ok, I modified the database and got around this problem.

However, this is a problem for careless staffs. Should give brief first!
