How to Remove Blocked IP Addresses of WHMCS from PHPMyAdmin?

Just like WordPress, WHMCS also allows only three failed login attempts. After three continuous invalid login attempts, the local IP will be blocked by the WHMCS. However, It will be automatically unblocked at a certain time because it’s not a root level block, WHMCS personally blocked those IP addresses that have done multiple invalid login attempts. But, if it’s urgent to unban the IP address then you can manually unban it from the PHPMyAdmin section in cPanel.

How to Remove Blocked IP Addresses in WHMCS from PHPMyAdmin

The blocked IP addresses can be removed directly in WHMCS easily but, you cannot log into WHMCS when your IP is already blocked. However, you can do it by switching your internet to a different ISP but, if you want to log in to WHMCS from the same IP that just got banned, you’ll have to wait until it gets unblocked automatically, or unblocked by someone else (Administrator) with a different IP address.
