// Example of a simple login using LogLimiter.
// We will see how LogLimiter can helps us to avoid bruteforces attacks.

// Setting the configuration
$attempts = 5; // Max attempts before blocking
$delay = 10; // Time of blocking (minutes)
$elapse = 10; // Time after restart attempts counting (minutes)
// Connecting to database
$db = @mysql_connect('db_host', 'db_user', 'db_password');

// Login datas:
$login_u = "buzzlightyear"; // Username
$login_p = "zurgdaddy"; // Password
// OT: It would be a great login for Buzz, woudn't it? ;)

// Including LogLimiter class file
include_once "loglimiter.class.php";
