    dezagus,

    The root account is locked out in cphulkd due to excessive login failures.
    You will have to clear the brutes table in cphulkd.


    # mysql -u root -p
    (give your mysql password )


    mysql> use cphulkd

    mysql> delete from brutes;

    You should be able to access now.

    Also, enable csf/lfd and disable cphulkd in my opinion :)

    Dear,

    Thank you for answer. If the value "Maximum Failures By Account" is cero, this means about if someone try brute force to "root" this will not block the account for all, inclusive, me?
