How to Remove Your IP from Blacklist

The Direct Admin control comes with the Brute Force Attack Monitor where it will block the attacker ip from accessing the control panel at port 2222.

If there’s a lot of failure login to access the control panel, the user IP will be blacklisted as well and it will be released after a certain time (depending on your configuration in the Direct Admin control panel).

If you wish to remove the ip blacklist immediately, you will need to perform the following:

Step 1 : SSH to the server

Step 2 : Edit the file

vi /usr/local/directadmin/data/admin/ip_blacklist

save it and restart the Direct Admin service

/etc/init.d/directadmin restart
