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.
I have installed this plugin, and it blocked a lot of hackers.
This plugin is perfect. Tested with last two version of WP on Centos 7.
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.
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
Very simple and so very smart!
Thank you :)
It’s just the tool I was looking for. It’s simple and works like expected. Thank You very much!
