I got a little excited near launch and installed Sucuri and sorted out a number of generic security tags (taken screenshots) and then adjusted the directory privacy of wp-admin etc etc so people can't just see the site, this was in the Cpanel area of my host.

However I didn't create a user (as the instructions which I read afterwards said to do ), then I turned off password protection again for them all, including the sub directories.

Now when I try log in, either via the hosting site link or the domain, it asks for a user / pass and then moves to a 401 error.....

I have no idea what I'm doing clearly.
