Lack of Interest AdminCP - log login failures

    In Kayako SupportSuite 4 "Fusion", the administrator panel is set up such that login failures are logged to the system. I personally think that this is useful and can be used to lock down things.

    On a side note, can we change the filename of admin.php, and still retain its full functionality?

    Actually, this could be extended to log other failures as well, such as system (software-XF) and PHP issues caused by the software. Might be useful in debugging.

    This is also a vBulletin feature. Wouldn't mind having it in XenForo as well.

    It's under Error Handling & Logging. You can log failed AdminCP login attempts to a text file on the server.

    Oh dear :/ - but can it store it in database and/or email the admin(s)?

    I would like to see a warning upon successful login (x number of failed logins since your last visit)... If it was you then you can just clear it but it wasn't you know to immediately look into it further.

    While we're at it, why not log the failed passwords the user used! [/sarcasm]

    We had a discussion somewhere about this on some piece of software, I think MyBB. Someone trialled it on their site. Came up with pretty amusing results.

    I know it's an old post... but... I'd like to see something like this. Perhaps even options for banning IPs automatically after X amount of incorrect tries along with any associated account(s) used by that IP address.

    Yeah this would be a good feature.
