Limit login attempts!?

Limit login attempts!?

Hi

I wonder how to accomplish a limit login attempts feature when created all the standard security assist pages from the wizard? I have used the simple login/logout template. I have implemented the login functionallity in my start page (seperate sidebar div) and also included a logout button to redirect to the logout page in which I've included a clear all session behaviour and a redirect behaviour back to startpage. Ive included show region behaviours to startpage allowing the login box to show when users are not logged in and logout button to show when users are logged in. All this works! Ive tried a guuide from another thread to implement limited login attempts (Max logins) but I can't get it to work! I need a simple explanation how to accomplish this from where I am now according to description above!?

Hey Steelace,

There are a few ways to do what you are asking, such as creating a session variable on the first failed login, and incrementing it by 1 with every failed login attempt. Then, when it reaches a certain number, it does what you want it to do.

If you need further assistance, please contact sales at 888-490-1545 if you're in the USA, or +1-858-768-6600 if you aren't to set up a premere ticket, and our engineers can help you implement the feature.

Thanks

I have tried the guide Jason wrote under thread: showthread.php?p=85979

This does not work for me! I have checked carefully that that the session code is before the page access rule code.

I have enclosed the code for my login/logout page. I use swedish language in my site but that has nothing to do with the php code. Hope someone can help me with this problem.

the code to set the session and check the rule is after the authenticate user code on the page, it should be before the authenticate user code.

Jason, I've tried to put the code in every possible place and still no success! I've enclosed a zipped php file with the code for that page if you would please take a closer look?

the code at lines 66 - 82:

php:
<?php

if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(!isset(
$_SESSION["loginCount"]))     {
  
$_SESSION["loginCount"] = "0";
}
?>
<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(isset(
$_POST["LogIn_submit"]))     {
  
$_SESSION["loginCount"] = "".$_SESSION['loginCount'] +1  ."";
}
?>
<?php
if (!WA_Auth_RulePasses("Max logins")){
    
WA_Auth_RestrictAccess("forgotpassword.php");
}
?>




needs to be moved to line 9 so that it is before the security assist authenticate user code.
