I've installed Wordpress, but cannot access my Admin from outside of Australia / New Zealand

Follow

In some cases, for security, we have put in place restrictions via cached .htaccess to stop malicious entities from overseas accessing wordpress administrators.

These restrictions can usually be quite easily bypassed by disabling them, or manually allowing access based on the IP addresses.

Within a .htaccess, you are able to add the following different lines, to enable unrestricted access to the wp-login.php

<FilesMatch wp-login.php>
allow from all
</FilesMatch>

If you would like to restrict it so only certain IP addresses may be able to use the following

<FilesMatch wp-login.php>
order allow,deny
allow from 1.2.3.4
deny from all
</FilesMatch>

Generally, this would be done in the top of the .htaccess in your public_html, once this is done, you should be able to access the wp-login.php files.
