Hi

I have a problem where the public ip of the server is banned by fail2ban on xmlrpc

i have disabled all plugins and tracked it down to the wpforo one.

I assume it is trying to do something with a wrong password how do i track this down?

Hi @audia4tdi,

Please let us know how you see the wpForo impact to this ban? And please explain what do you mean saying "the public ip of the server is banned by fail2ban"? wpForo is just a forum plugin, why it should cause IP address banning?

Hi

When i enable the plugin i get these errors

The IP x.x.x.x has just been banned by Fail2Ban after

3 attempts against Wordpress (xmlrpc).

this is when a cron task is called in the background. When the wpforo plugin is disabled i dont get these errors reported
