    Hello,

    I noticed an (Israel) IP is crawling thousands of pages on my site, causing high server load. I have blocked the IP using IP Deny Manager, but where I can find full logs of this activity? Latest Visitors on cPanel only shows the latest 1000, so it doesn't show everything. I checked /home/user/logs/, there's a .gz file but it's empty.

    Additionally should I report this to their ISP as an abuse?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello :)

    I would first search to see if the IP address is associated with a search engine. Blocking it may result in negative consequences for the search engine rankings of the websites hosted on your server. Otherwise, if it's an IP scanning for exploits, it's best to ensure it's blocked by your firewall (e.g. CSF). You can review the domain access logs for Apache in the /usr/local/apache/domlogs directory.

    Thank you.
