[Plugin: Better WP Security] Ban users not working (6 posts)

    I have Login Limits Blacklist Threshold set to 1 and a lockout time for 60 minutes (yes, I know it's risky).

    I logged into my site from a remote location to force a lockout. I was locked out, but the IP address was not added to the Ban Users list and I was locked out for far less than 60 minutes.

    I looked at my htaccess file to see if there was anything that might affect things. It's enclosed here:

    [Code moderated as per the Forum Rules. The maximum number of lines of code that you can post in these forums is ten lines. Please use the pastebin]


  2. Hmm, can you paste that code into pastebin? Also, it shouldn't ban your own IP address if you're logged in as admin (that could cause one heck of a problem).

    Pastebin posted previously.

    It was not banning my IP. I was in the admin from my home computer and trying to break in from my iPad on cellular, so it had a totally different IP.

  6. Thanks. I will take a look at this. Last question...

    ...are you using any reverse proxies such as Cloudflare?
