User account gets disabled every 24 hours (daily)

Summary

I am the main and 1st account of many on the site (members and sudo users) but only my account gets disabled every 24 hours, seems like around 7am EST. I have to reenable via phpmyadmin every time.

It started about 2 months ago but not following an update or anything.

Please help!

Also, I guesstimate this isn’t from someone trying to hack my account based on the consistent timing.

That looks like an automatic login attempt. You could rename that user, to avoid this automatic disabling.

Thats what I thought too but unfortunately Ive changed it to unique things twice and it disables the next day so very unlikely its not a system thing. Thanks for the suggestion.

Then you could have an invalid autofill for this page. Or something that tries to replay the browser history once a day (but normally this would not replay a POST).

Disabled in what way? Blocked, active unchecked?

In the database it is ‘0’ under active and the login page says something like, “your account has been disabled, please contact your administrator or developer for help.”

A user could be blocked by to many wrong password attempts but he could not be disabled that way. That must be something different. Please take a look into the server logs to locate the entry point that disables the user.
