I have seen the question answered on how to remove a banned ip address. But how do I begin to access mysql in order to remove the banned IP address in nextcloud box?
If you have SSH access to the server, you can do it on the command line, or I like to use phpmyadmin for a lot of things.
I am aware of that I’m trying to find the steps and commands needed.
Ok good. So you need to check the oc_bruteforce_attempts table for entries you want to remove.
After you narrow down what to remove, you could delete individual rows or run a delete query, something like
DELETE FROM oc_bruteforce_attempts WHERE ip LIKE "192.168.1.%"
