…g. This configuration also works well with W3 Total Cache. This configuration is for Varnish on a separate server, but should also work on a single server with appropriate changes to the port and backend IP settings. Varnish Config (/etc/sysconfig/varnish) # Configuration file for varnish # # /etc/init.d/varnish expects the variable $DAEMON_OPTS to be set […]
VacantServer WordPress sites are getting hammered with bad logins and probes. We’ve implemented a plugin to log failed login attempts to syslog, and a Fail2Ban filter for the same. If you run these on RedHat, you’ll need some additional configuration info… here it is: WordPress login failure regex (error_log):
^%(__prefix_line)sAuthentication failure for .* from <HOST>$
Apache nohome regex (error_log):
[client <HOST>] File does not exist: .*/~.*
