I am locked out of my account and can’t login with either my WordPress credentials or LDAP credentials. What should I do?

Firstly, please check if the user you are trying to login with exists in your WordPress. To unlock yourself, rename miniorange-wp-ldap-login plugin name. You will be able to login with your WordPress credentials. After logging in, rename the plugin back to miniorange-wp-ldap-login. If the problem persists, activate, deactivate and again activate the plugin.

We experienced a difficult to resolve issue but Avi was there again for us, we checked together every possible aspect that might have been causing the issue. Avi sent an updated version of the plugin that did the trick. Thank you very much.

The software works as intended with many configuration options and excellent add-ons. The support is fantastic and available around the clock. Whenever I´ve had a query, Avi was available for a Zoom Screensharing Session almost immediately.

Miniorange's wordpress ldap login plugin works great and there are not a lot of plugins like this out there in the market. The support team is great. All my queries were handled by Avi Saxena and he did a fabulous job presenting the demo before I could buy the plugin. My company is using their plugin and the support provided by Avi is great. The plugin has a lot of features and add ons available and can be customized as per user requirements.

We've been using MultiSite plugin since 2016 and earlier this year we upgraded to the LDAP Cloud Plugin (with support) with great success. The plugin works great and the MiniCloud team is great to work with.
