    Stop WordPress Brut Force Attacks Automatically Using ModSecurity ConfigServer

    Since I finally added it to my new Dedi I already have... 68.183.180.46 # lfd: (mod_security) mod_security (id:5000135) triggered by 68.183.180.46 (SG/Singapore/-): 1 in the last 3600 secs - Tue Mar 24 14:57:57 2020 158.69.124.147 # lfd: (mod_security) mod_security (id:5000135) triggered by...

    Stop WordPress Brut Force Attacks Automatically Using ModSecurity ConfigServer

    Absolutely! There are certainly some nice WP plugins that will probably do a better job than what we're doing here with modsec. This only protects from brute force attempts on wp-login.php, I'll be adjusting it to also include xmlrpc, but there are lots of other threats that plugins, like...

    Stop WordPress Brut Force Attacks Automatically Using ModSecurity ConfigServer

    Came back here to add my rules to a new dedi. Just a small update. Paths have changed with newer versions of cPanel so it's easiest just to apply the rule in: WHM »Security Center »ModSecurity™ Tools » Rules List (button top right) » Edit Rules (button top right). All I had to do was copy the...

    So what's up with the Network and Hardware status

    Issue with OpenVZ causing bugs. They've fixed it. Should be slowing down now. They go away shortly after they've been resolved. They don't want hundreds of posts showing downtime to prospects. I don't blame them. I doubt any host would keep a running list of every issue they've ever ran into.

    Staging environment

    It was a few years ago. Softaculous' installer for WP was nice, but I preferred doing it the manual way and be more hands on with it. When I saw you mention that it offered staging that piqued my interest so I returned to it for the first time in years. Their pricing is more than reasonable...

    Staging environment

    Good Morning! Was just poking around to check out that WP staging feature and... ...Did KH use to pay for us all to have the license? I know I was able to install WP using Softaculous not all that long ago.

    Tuning mysql and mariadb

    Assuming you have cPanel you can view what you're using in WHM under MySQL/MarieaDB, that's also where you can change which one you're using. Not sure in DA, but with SSH you can just type mysql then status The my.cnf file is in the /etc/ directory on cPanel servers. Use caution, lots of damage...

    Webmail Phishing

    Thanks for the notice @Jenolan I safely visited errormail.host and saw it brings up a namecheap "recently registered domain" notice, that very well may be entirely fake, but WHOIS did verify it is in fact registered with them. I submitted an abuse report, just in case they haven't already been...

    DKIM and SPF records - needs sorting!

    mxtoolbox.com is a great tool I use for checking that sort of thing. Pretty much anytime I'm working on DNS or Email delivery issues I have it open somewhere. You can use it to check that you have it setup correctly. The below links to their tools for those two topics also includes a brief...

    Migrating a vbulletin forum

    Certain death of a host. RIP HG 2014. I use to host my Dedi with HG, but EIG bought out the company, then destroyed up-time back in 2014, along with many other once good hosts. When I discovered KH, my first question was "Any plans to sell out to EIG?" Obviously they got the answer right for me...

    Only 5 Votes :( all for sticking with cPanel. Is no one willing to admit switching to DA? :p

    I noticed that same issue last weekend. I think Johnathan was playing tricks on us.

    ...at KnownHost anyway. I decided to stick with cPanel, at least for now. Until I have the time to invest in checking out DirectAdmin. I didn't want to make any drastic changes until I'm sure everything will go smoothly.

    Windows Local Server Access Issue

    We use Hiren for that sort of thing, but I've not yet tried it on Server 2019.. So long as it's a local account Hiren's password tools should be able to blank the password. We usually unlock and blank the password for the local Admin account to then manage accounts and access files...

    Avid movie watchers?

    We went to see Toy Story 4 a few weeks ago and I thought it was just as good as the first (2 and 3 were meh IMO). We also saw Frozen 2 a couple weeks ago and everyone enjoyed it. It's going to be a couples weeks before I get a chance to see the new Star Wars movie. Let me know what you think of...
