Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

No, sorry. This plugin may only be installed on single-site WordPress instances.
The Community Pool is a new opt-in feature that combines attack data from your site with other sites running in pool mode to produce a global blocklist. In other words, an attack against one becomes an attack against all! The blocklist data is conservatively filtered using a tiered and weighted ranking system based on activity shared within the past 24 hours. For an IP address to be eligible for community banning, it must be independently reported from multiple sources and have a significant amount of total failures. Your site’s whitelist is always respected. Failures from whitelisted IPs will never be sent to the pool, and if the pool declares a ban for an IP you have whitelisted, your site will not ban it. For more information, check out the Community Pool settings page.
The Login Activity page will show any active bans in the top/right corner. You can click the button corresponding to the victim to remove the ban. If you accidentally banned yourself and cannot access the backend, you have a few options: Wait until the defined time has elapsed; Login from a different IP address (tip: use your cellphone (via data, not Wifi)); Ask a friend to login and pardon you; Temporarily de-activate the plugin by renaming the apocalypse-meow plugin folder via FTP; Remember: you can (and should) whitelist any IP addresses that you commonly log in from. This is done through the Settings pgae.
Of course not! Haha. Apocalypse Meow is here to solve security problems, not create them. Only usernames and IP addresses are stored.
As of version 1.5.0, it is now possible to specify an alternative $_SERVER variable Apocalypse Meow should use to determine the visitor’s “true” IP. It is important to note, however, that depending on how that environmental variable is populated, the value might be forgeable. Nonetheless, this should be better than nothing!
This informational message appears on Apocalypse Meow admin pages if your site is running in WP_DEBUG mode. This version of Vue.js can provide more useful information for debugging Javascript-related issues. When WP_DEBUG is set to FALSE (which should be the case for any production sites), the leaner production version of Vue.js is loaded instead. 🙂
Apocalypse Meow tracks login history in the database. If your WordPress site is spread across multiple load-balanced servers, they must share access to a master database, or else tracking will only occur on a per-node basis.
