Subject RE: [users@httpd] How to Lock a user out after 3 bad attempts
Date Thu, 30 Nov 2006 21:38:05 GMT
I was trying to figure out a way to trigger a database call on failure.
Our database has a field for number of failed attempts.  But I can not
find a way to trigger it with AuthDBI

Any hints

Not that I know of.  It is a harder problem than it might appear to
be.  Since HTTP is stateless, you'd need to write to a database on
each failed authentication attempt, and then figure out some way to
keep the database fresh.
