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 number of incorrect password attempts to lockout the account. The default value is 6. For example, using with UserLockoutInterval, the following configuration directives will lock out a user if he or she submits an incorrect password 6 or more times within 1800 seconds. If you specify 0, Movable Type never locks out user accounts.
