Access is locked. Please try again in a few minutes.

I did clear,flush the cache, reindex but still not working.



Finally! What worked for me was setting

brute-force-bad-attempts-count = 0

in var/brute-force.ini

  • This worked for me. It has security implications though and you should read and consider the advice given in the link about moving the downloader folder. – Kevin Sadler Jun 2 '17 at 12:02
  • This was necessary because that security mechanism (anti brute force) was simply broken on the Magento side. Somehow, a single browser session caused it to increment inappropriately. – Marcos Jun 5 '17 at 9:32

Give the <magento-root>/downloader directory recursively 777 permissions, after your extension installation set it back to the original permission settings.

  • It's kinda weird but it just disappears after a couple of minutes then I tried it back it's gone. – nhinzky Oct 20 '16 at 13:24
