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.

<p>This configuration directive specifies the number of incorrect password attempts from a single IP address to lockout. The default value is 10.  For example, using with <a href="/documentation/appendices/config-directives/iplockoutinterval.html">IPLockoutInterval</a>, 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. If you specify 0, Movable Type never locks out IP addresses.</p>
