    So i have this issue where if a customer sets up a dbase and user , lets say for wordpress, and then the client makes a mistake with the password in the wordpress gui, say he chnages it but not in the ispconfig control panel, the web server gets refused to connect to the mysql server after so many connections... the below errors appears on the mysql server.

    Host 'host_name' is blocked because of many connection errors.
    Unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts'

    the problem there is that it refuses all connections from the webserver, not just that on dbase... so in essences anyone can deliberately do this to start a denial of service attack on the mysql server.

    There must be a way around this?
