    Everytime I try to do something in WHM it says the page cannot be accessed and then when I go to the login screen it says it detected a brute force attack so I cannot then login for like 10 minutes. I am using Chrome by the way. Anyone have the same problem?

    Try another browser and see if that solves this for you. Also, you might want to add your IP to the Trusted IPs List.

    WHM > Security Center > cPHulk Brute Force Protection > Trusted IPs List.

    I had the same issue on one server - See on my old server WHM did have the same IP as account setups, so They was randomly guessing the login which was blocking me out.

    The new server, I gave WHM a completely different IP to the shared user accounts and I never had a problem since, Also my IP changes every 12 hours so its impossible to add the IP, And I 100% will not suggest adding a range.

    Only thing I would say is put ur clients on a completly different IP to the WHM :)
