    I have created my own API for my software to talk to Amember.

    As it stands you can try to login in as many times as you wish. I don't want someone to try to do a brute for attack on my server.. I would like to setup my API so that after 3 unsuccessful times in 1 hour it would block that account by ignoring requests.

    What existing tables would I need to use.. I like to addapt Amember's existing database tables if I can. If not then I can write my own but I did not want to reinvent the wheel on this one.

    I guess my questions.... Where are unsuccessful or last logins stored? Is it a table some where or is it just a cookie set?

    Thanks in advance.

    They are stored in am_failed_logins table:
    Necessary fiedls are:
    ip - user's IP address.
    failed_logins - count of attempts.
    last_failed - last failed attempt timestamp.
