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

now this is a truly useful little plugin which can save your site without the need of any 3rd party connections, unlike the jetpack protect.

Great additional security

Works out of the box

Latest wordpress install ( 4.1 ) worked like a charm. Had to make a modification to the WordPress.cnf file since I'm on centos, but that's expected.

Kicks bots and ass.

Little tweaking on the Debian side (not the plugin's fault) and works perfectly. Your mileage may vary due to server configuration but the plugin definitely does what it says. No naging, no "pro-version", no BS.
Thanks for the good work!
