i am facing a strange problem, brute force is giving me following message
A brute force attack has been detected in one of your service logs.


IP 1.1.1.1 has 54 failed login attempts: wordpress2=54

Check 'Admin Level -> Brute Force Monitor' for more information
http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=404

where 1.1.1.1 is my server ip.


Can any one tell me what does it means? which log file to check? how to identify problem.

Regards

it is after disabling http2.
I don't know WP but if you changed protocols / SSL ore whatever sometimes settings of a CMS/Htaccess/host has to get the right changes also. ( Or something in cache there.... with http2...)

( local browser caching with old...)

Why suspecting these is because that are the changes the host did get, doesn;t mean the cause couldn't be somewhere else ;)
