A Kimai plugin, which logs an error message for every failed login attempt to a dedicated logfile.
This logfile can be analyzed by
fail2ban to block access and prevent authentication attacks.
You should know how to use and configure
fail2ban, we cannot help with that part!
Having said that, here are some possible rules for your
First the Kimai specific filter:
#/etc/fail2ban/filter.d/kimai2.conf [Definition] failregex = fail2ban.ERROR: <HOST> \[.*\] \[.*\]$
And the additional jail.local for Kimai:
#/etc/fail2ban/jail.local [kimai2] enabled = true filter = kimai2 logpath = /var/www/kimai2/var/log/fail2ban.log port = http,https bantime = 600 banaction = iptables-multiport maxretry = 3
Now touch the file to make sure it exists:
The following table contains a comparison between plugin and required minimum Kimai version.
|Bundle version||Minimum Kimai version|
|1.1 - 1.2||1.18|
|1.0 - 1.0.1||1.0|
Extract the ZIP file and upload the included directory and all files to your Kimai installation to the new directory:
Or you can clone it directly to the

The file structure needs to look like this afterwards:
After uploading the files, Kimai needs to know about the new plugin. It will be found once the cache was re-built. Call these commands from the Kimai directory:
It is not advised, but in case the above command fails you could try:
You might have to set file permissions afterwards:
You have to allow PHP (your webserver process) to write to
var/ and it subdirectories.
Here is an example for Debian/Ubuntu (to be executed inside the Kimai directory):
Test Kimai before executing these commands (they are likely not required in a shared-hosting environment).
You probably need to prefix them with
the group might be called different than
Updating the plugin works exactly like the installation:
