How mod_evasive disable a server hosting. (Apache Web Server)

Some Server administrators use mod_evasive to protect against attacks Hosting Servers it manages. Apache module, Mod_evasive is a good solution to rejects requestRepeated APIs coming in from one IP webserver in a very short period of time. It is good protection anti flood.
The worst is that sometimes mod_evasive becomes a problem when rate indexing in search engines for a site is very large. Request sites reptiles of bots indexing, especially Yahoo! SlurpThey are very often confused with attacks on webserver and inevitably mod_evasive robots will block access to the server and the default sites. From experience I can tell you that Yahoo really does flood. There were cases when Yahoo! used more than 1000 banda visitors.
Not only indexing robots can fall "victims" of this module apache, but visitors who have a poor Internet connection (Due to prolonged's request, access will be blocked) or forming clicks on web pages in very small time intervals.

2. We are going in where it is located . Normally it is "cd / etc / httpd / conf"And"cd / usr / local / apache / conf. "We can not change anything until I started doing a backup (backup file) to httpd.conf.

3. open and edit httpd.conf. We line 'AddModule mod_evasive.c"And change it to "#AddModule Mod_evasive.c"." # "Faced with a command line invalidate it. Sometimes in httpd.conf line above instead find"LoadModule evasive_module libexex / mod_evasive"Or"Include conf / mod_evasive20.conf. "And that lines this year to ensure that there is nothing to mod_evasive in httpd.conf, give a search for" Evasive ".

4. We remain in the folder "conf" file and identify mod_evasive20.conf or mod_evasive.conf. Make a backup of this file and then delete them content. An even simpler solution would be renaming the file mod_evasive.conf in mod_evasive.conf.old.
