    "This account is currently locked out because a brute force attempt was detected. Please wait a few minutes and try again. Attempting to login again will only increase this delay. If you frequently experience this problem, we recommend having your username changed to something less generic. "



    This message occured for the second time, I don't know what should be done to prevent it from happening. I know somebody is trying to hacking into my server, but is there anything I can do to make it impossible to hack into my server? Is there any configurations I can make? I would really appreciate it if you may help.

    Recommend to install CSF firewall

    I would recommend to install CSF firewall on your server to prevent such kind of attacks. It will block the IP address automatically if it will find more than 5 failed login attempts.

    For more details visit their official website ConfigServer Services.
