    I cannot login via SFTP, SSH or other. Where can I clear the list where it blocks my IP?

    Is it cPHulkd?

    You did not specify whether the block is from cPHulkd, which is the only component of cPanel that might block access to specific IP addresses based on log-in failures. If cPHulkd caused the block, then the following will clear the list and allow you access:

    Code:
    # mysql cphulkd
    mysql> delete from brutes;
    mysql> quit;

    How do you get to a MySQL prompt if you're blocked from the server? :)

    Another computer or remotely from another server might work.

    That is correct; if the originating IP address that you would normally connect from is blocked then you would need to initiate access from a different IP address, location, server, or other means such as by remote KVM access or by contacting the on-site data center personnel who can log-into the system console.

    For clarity, I was aware of that :)

    The reply looked as though the OP had access to the server when in fact he didn't.

    If remote MySQL is disabled it's also not an option. Local or KVM access is the only answer.
