Security

Pagekit security extension

Pagekit is a secure CMS. But there are a lot of bad guys out there, who try to attack your Pagekit-based website by guessing the password or spamming your comments.

Let's get rid of that.

How to use

Installation

Using this extension is very easy. Just install it from Pagekit's marketplace.

Requirements

There are no special requirements. If Pagekit works this extension will work, too.

Configuration

After enabling the extension, you may enter the settings.

General

There's nothing to do here right now.

Jails

You can specify, which actions will result in bans.

At the moment there are 4 jails possible:

  • Login Jail: Counts failed logins
  • Forbidden Jail: Counts attempts to load pages, which return a forbidden response
  • Honeypot Jail: Counts attempts to an URL that contains a set of configurable strings (e.g. wp-login.php, xmlrpc.php, ...)
  • Spam Jail: Counts blog-comments, that are marked as spam by the administrator

You can specify a attempt-limit for each jail. E.g.: You can specify that an IP is allowed to enter wrong login credentials x times before the IP gets banned.

Whitelist

At first you should have a look at the whitelist-tab. You should add the IP of your website itself (if you are using spqr/sitemap). If you got a statical IP - go add this, too. You don't want yourself banned, right?
