Rate Limit Exceeded

If your Web browser showed you a link to this page, you’ve exceeded a “rate limit”, usually by trying to login to WordPress or Joomla more than 12 times per hour. The rate limit prevents automated software from trying to guess login passwords with “brute force” attacks.

How can I fix this?

If you were blocked, the page that sent you here has a link you can use to reset the rate limit counter.

Is this your site?

If this is your website, and you want to completely and permanently disable this type of rate limiting for it, you can do so by adding this line to your site’s .htaccess file:

SetEnv tigertech-security-rate-limiting disable

If you do this, remember that there is nothing to block “hackers” who use automated software to try many different passwords on your site, so be sure that you’ve chosen strong, complex login passwords that don’t appear in a dictionary.
