Recently, I had drama unfold with this very blog itself. Ghost, my blogging platform decided to play games with me. It decided to log me out😡, block🤬 me from my own website and gave me the following error:

“Too many login attempts”

Ghost forums are plagued with numerous users facing this exact error and countless solutions provided. Well, unfortunately for me, either none of those worked or I was not able to implement them.

What worked?

It appears the nightmare of losing access to my blog was caused by Cloudflare. I am assuming, the frequent caching of the page, www.merecivilian.com/ghost was causing this issue.

I resolved this by going to my Cloudflare settings and adding a Page Rule to bypass any Cloudflare activity on www.merecivilian.com/ghost

Note: Free Cloudflare users are limited to 3 page rules only.

Next day, I logged in just fine and life made sense again 😀.

This blog post is for those who are struggling with the exact same issue and may be of help. Note this worked for my setup.
