Under HTTP Get Attack
I am running the latest version of Litespeed enterprise.
My forums are getting hit with HTTP get requests at a rate of about 100 requests a second.
Now Litespeed and everything else is fine, it is just that PHP is getting pounded and everything slows down because of it. I have tried the access denied directorys (didnt work for some reason), I also have CSF and DDoS Deflate installed and they ban IPs but the attack seems to never stop. I checked via ssh and there is about 200 ips connected to my server. Does anyone have any advice on this? Reccomended throttling settings, phpsuexec settings etc and most importantly how can I "mitigate" this http get flood?
