This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file, mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.

This configuration directive specifies the duration for the IP lockout. The default value is 1800 (seconds). For example, using with IPLockoutLimit, the following configuration directives will lock out an IP address if 10 or more incorrect login attempts are made within 1800 seconds from the same IP address.
