If your plugin is trying to login and gets a bad password attempt and that happens more than X times in a row, the account would then get locked if you have configured the system to lock a user after X bad password attempts.


So, I am guessing that you have configured the system to lock users out after a set number of bad password attempts.  This is what is locking out the account.


Then, you have to find out what the plugin is using for the password and why it is not correct.  Has whatever user is involved changed their password?  If so, how do you get the new one to the plugin for use?  If not, what has changed from where the plugin was getting the password to where it is now?  Has the configuration of the password for the plugin changed?


I don’t know what the session issue is other than maybe a side effect of the login problem and getting locked out of the system.  First, I would resolve the password problem and then see if the other remains.

Hello Listers,


we got a Filter Plugin we’ve been using for years. Out of sudden is seems to be locking my account when I call it a number of times from a Filter.


The Log says stuff like: local provided session id 1684 not found. Or it claims that I’m using the wrong password which is first being tolerated a number of times but the it locks me out.
