    It'll be good, but it breaks Frontpage extensions (i.e. if you upload via Frontpage, you'll get blocked).

    yeap, I heard about it breaks front page extensions, but will it cause conflict with mod_security, bfd or apf firewall ? anyone with all this installed and running mod_dosevasive withouth problems ?

    Go on, have a guess
    That's the only thing that I've seen it break. On servers where visitors have particularly quick access it can end up treating them as DOS attackers and so sometimes tuning of the variables is required. It's not for every server usage demographic, but it can help for others.

    My actual variables are defined as:
    Code:
     
        DOSHashTableSize    3097
        DOSPageCount        5
        DOSSiteCount        100
        DOSPageInterval     2
        DOSSiteInterval     2
        DOSBlockingPeriod   600
    
    Chirpy, what variables do you suggest to avoid problems with legitim users ? are this fine ?
