I have a cPanel v94.0.11 server with Apache. It has mod_evasive for some rate throttling. It works fine.

I simply need to know how to disable mod_evasive for a single website. I don't need to whitelist an external IP. I want to somehow have anything incoming to a specific domain I host to not be mod-evasive'd. Can I turn it off in the addon domains .htaccess?

Hey there! Unfortunately this isn't possible. According to the creators of that module here:

"No. mod_evasive is an apache module, it sets global limits based on your configuration for the server to protect the server from DOS attacks. Disabling it for a domain or vhost would make it possible, via a DOS attack, to bring the whole server down. This modules job is protect your server."

I'm sorry I don't have better news on that one for you.
