Works as planned. If you are using CentOS, ensure to read the included readme if the plugin fails to log to /var/log/secure.

It's plain and simple: IT WORKS.
We installed the fail2ban jail on all our servers and clients just need to install the plugin.

This was an alternative to writing my own code. It works by recording all login attempts to my secure log.

Works great!

Great tool!
It takes time for all the systems to act together (I was testing it with many failed attempts and nothing was happening), but eventually it all came together.

good, but for ubuntu...

I had to add 'port' to my wordpress.conf to get it to work:


enabled = true
filter = wordpress
logpath = /var/log/auth.log
port = http,https
