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.

For example, using with <a href="/documentation/appendices/config-directives/userlockoutlimit.html">UserLockoutLimit</a>, the following configuration directives will lock out a user if he or she submits an incorrect password 6 or more times within 1800 seconds. </p>
