    When I tried to get webmin running, I ended up with too many failed logins, and it showed this page:

    Error - Access denied for 127.0.0.1. The host has been blocked because of too many authentication failures.

    My own computer is now blocked, and I can't access webmin at all.

    Help!

      Wait about 60 seconds and you'll get another chance.

      /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf

      Edit:
      blockhost_failures=5
      blockhost_time=60

      to give more or less failure attempts and lockout time.
