    Hello, I just noticed that some ip addressees where all day connected to one of my boxes, some kind of servers or autosurfs bots, i blocked them in iptables, however if i go to Whm>>Server Status>>Apache Status i see them "connected" to my box, how can i kick them or kill its connections? (i dont want to restart apache)

    I identify this thanks to Cloudlinux LVE manager i saw that one website still in the "current usage" tab for a lot of minutes then i check in apache status and i found the ip addresses and that they had a very high "req", i just want to know how can i kill those connections.

    After i blocked them with iptables the website disappear from the "current usage" tab in Cloudlinux LVE manager however the connection still there in Apache status:

    Srv PID Acc M CPU SS Req Conn Child Slot Client VHost Request

    Hello :)

    Is there any particular reason you prefer to not restart Apache? It's likely why you still see those connections under "Apache Status".

    Thank you.
