Cpanel + CSF + suPHP = no php brute force protection?

user213887 asked:

I have NOT found anyone else talking about brute force detection in CSF with suPHP enabled. Maybe I’m not seeing the real picture or need but it feels that suPHP is weak at brute force detection.

Is there a setting in CSF that I need to change to enable this?

Or do I need to change a setting in Apache / EasyApache?

Or in the suPHP configuration itself?

We do not have any issues dealing with brute force attacks on email, and account services, just php applications.


I answered:

Brute force protection is what cPHulk is for.
