How to solve Lockout caused by CPHULK

nothing is more annoying than when you are locked out from your own server by cPhulk, Well this plugin is to ensure your server protection against bruteforce attacks.

there are many ways to flush cpuhulk blacklist and get into whm again using SSH, but to me the best option was to temporary disable cphulk and then get to WHM and remove my ip address from the list manually.

So if you wanna do it in the way I do it, you must login to your server using ssh and run following command:

/usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcphulkd stop

by executing above command you basically disabled cphulk service, but you should know it will go back live again in around 8 minutes, so basically you have 8 minutes time to login to WHM and sort of your lockout issue.
