I tried to login to my web hosting Cpanel recently but whenever my login authentication completed successful it will immediately return back to login page again with the error message that Your IP address has changed
I was wondering why the error message because i normally login to my cpanel without any problem but i remembered that i changed my internet provider from GLO to MTN which i normally login successful without any problem while using Glo but now am using MTN problems arises.
I decided not to ask my webhosting provider to help me out because i figured out that the error keep appearing because my new IP was not recognized and all i need is to figure out how to make it work.
I tried downloading Ip changer addon for Firefox browser which i did but no matter the IP address i change i still cannot login to my cpanel even after changing many IP addresses.
I tried clearing my browser history and catch but none of them worked, i also tried changing to No Proxy and Auto detect connection but none of them worked but i finally solved the problem but the question now is how.
I remembered since my host only recognized my Glo IP address that i usually use to login now i should try using MTN Ip directly and i went to my Firefox settings to change my browser to Manuel settings to mtn defaults ip address which is 10-199-212-2 port 8080 trust me after saving my settings none of the error message Your IP address has changed
appears again and that is how i solved my problem.
