How to turn off brute force notification but keep the monitoring running

Since DirectAdmin version 1.39 DirectAdmin has the brute force monitor feature which alerts every admin for brute force attacks. However, it does not block the IP’s. In this article we explain how to disable brute force notifications but with keeping the monitoring running.

1. Disable the notifications.

echo "hide_brute_force_notifications=1" >> /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf

2. Restart DirectAdmin.

service directadmin restart

Or, when you have systemctl:

systemctl restart directadmin
