    Dear all,

    Quick question. I've ISPC up-and-running with Fail2Ban configured to monitor/block invalid logins through the ISPC login page. This works like a charm, also the configured 'Ignore <IP-ADDRESS>' so I can't be lockout for any reason. However ISPC is also handling some kind of security on top of Fail2Ban.

    While testing the rules and action by Fail2Ban, after my fourth unsuccessful attempts, my <IP-ADDRESS> was successfully ignored by Fail2Ban, however ISPC came with its own security blockage "Too many failed login attempts. Please retry after 15 minutes". Is their any way I can reset this timer or ignore it for the 'ignored <IP-ADDRESS>es'?

    Many thanks,

    The attempts are checked with this query: "SELECT * FROM `attempts_login` WHERE `ip`= ? AND `login_time` > (NOW() - INTERVAL 1 MINUTE) LIMIT 1". So simply remove the records from the attempts_login table.

    I can't delete this entry. The message I receive (PHPMyAdmin) from the table 'attempts_login' is 'Current selection does not contain a unique column. Grid edit, checkbox, Edit, Copy and Delete features are not available.' So how can I delete any entry?

    Do not delete a column. Delete a row.

    Use SQL to delete whatever record you like to remove. Example:

    DELETE FROM attempts_login WHERE ip = ''
