Hello folks, I'm having my own DoS-protection build into my php-scripts. Those are checking how many accesses to the php-pages are done by which ip and so on. Once a user hits a given threshold his IP is added to a .htaccess-file and removed after a specified ban-time. that results in the following: which I don't see as a perfomance-enhancement with all its reloading of the htaccess ;-). Therefore I'd like to see a way to update the blocked ips for a vhost or directory through some api from an app.
