    Anyone seen this one before? I just installed mod_evasive on a server running Apache 2.2 then found this stuff down around line #88 or so of the httpd.conf


    ----------------------------------------------

    <IfModule mod_evasive20.c>
    LoadModule auth_passthrough_module modules/mod_auth_passthrough.so

    Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/php.conf"

    DOSHashTableSize 3097

    DOSPageCount 5

    DOSSiteCount 100

    DOSPageInterval 2

    DOSSiteInterval 2

    DOSBlockingPeriod 600

    </IfModule>

    <Directory "/">
    Options All
    AllowOverride All
    </Directory>
    LoadModule evasive20_module modules/mod_evasive20.so


    ----------------------------------------------

    Questions:

    -- Why would LoadModule auth_passthrough_module modules/mod_auth_passthrough.so be found within the mod_evasive IfModule?

    -- Also, why would Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/php.conf" be there?

    -- And why would the mod_evasive IfModule be in the httpd.conf file BEFORE the LoadModule evasive20_module modules/mod_evasive20.so entry?

    I don't quite get it.
