    Cpanel version now is 11.46.0 build 14

    The server uses a remote database and this is a on going problem with cpanel as Apache builds and updates causes problems with a remote data base server.

    Mod security for instance never works after a apache build.
    It never enters correct info for the user and I have to fix it each time.

    Now we have a problem with Brute Force.

    Seems after the update it's trying to use a local database and I have no clue where the config files are so I can fix it.

    Does anyone know where this file is or how brute force connects to the database.
    What and where are the connect strings?

    Re: Brute Force pproblem after cpanel update

    I found the user and password config file

    It's in /var/cpanel/hulkdpass

    I updated the password for it but no luck.

    But the today's update fixed it!

    That saved me time but would still like to know where the host entry is for the mysql connect.
    Why did all else work and yet Brute Force was giving a mysql connect error?

    The host name is from $hostname = Cpanel::Sys::Hostname::gethostname();

    This info would be nice to know if one has a problem with Brute Force Mysql error.

    For those that would suggest I should have used /usr/local/cpanel/bin/hulkdsetup
    Tried it and it did not fix the problem yesterday.


    It would be nice if they could fix easy apache Mod Security connect problems.
    When I run easy apache it updates the password for the wrong connect entry.
    That's because they don't use update password = password() where user = "user-name" which would be the correct way.
    They instead use set password for user@host-name

    There are two entries for each user
    One for an IP address
    One for the server name

    It seems mod security connects using the IP address.

    That link brings me to customer support.

    Are we supposed to submit bug problems there?

    Turns out that they fixed it as I ran Easyapache and no problems this time.
    No problems with Mod Security of which I experienced in the past.

    No need to submit a ticket.
