What can I do to block brute force attempts on my Joomla installation? Print

  • 0

To help block brute force attacks on your Joomla installations administrator login "/administrator", you can either install an extension such as:


Or you can place the following code in the .htaccess file located in your Joomla's /administrator folder:

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from x.x.x.x
Be sure to replace x.x.x.x with your IP address. If the file .htaccess does not exist, you can simple create one using a text file editor.
