    I know that cPanel doesn't provide formal support for ConfigServer Firewall, but I figured some of the users on this forum are using it. I am using it but genuine users are being throttled and the log reports "IP too many connections" and says the number of requests to port 80 (HTTP), usually a couple hundred (e.g. 431 or 652). I changed CONNLIMIT parameter to 80;5000 and the throttling still occurs even at lower numbers. Anyone know the specifics of what's going on? ConfigServer forums don't seem to care about my post.

    There should be no reason for that many open connections I would think. I suppose you might check the logs for that domain and see if you can find any sort of problems there. Or, remove this setting from your config completely.
