Why is when I enter the right login details in whm or cpanel sometimes it still fails?

    It's so annoying, sometimes a cookie or some security thing says the log in is not right even though it is. I can log in from the command line but with WHM it says wrong log in.

    What security feature does this and how do I disable it for life?

    Thanks!

    Is it the hulk thing? Some cookie thing?

    most likely it is, in fact cphulkd . The system oddly enough sees no difference between a failed login (bad password) and a login that is blocked.
    To see if this is the case, you need to login to the server (as root), and check the database:
    Code:
    mysql
    use table cphulkd;
    select * from brutes where ip = 'youriphere';
    
    If something shows up
    Code:
    delete from brutes where ip='youriphere';
    
    You can then login to WHM and disable cphulkd or tweak it a bit more ;)

    If you are having a static ip, the best idea is to white-list your ip in cphulk.

    Cheers!!!

    Apparently the boards were just rolled back for some reason, but as the two people previously said before that happened it is most likely (almost always) cphulk. White-list your IP/C Block and you should be fine. Our servers get hit hard by brute-force attempts and we used to have the same problem.

    In a perfect world, I would love hulk to block failed log ins for htaccess but nothing else. Any ideas?
