I have installed ModEvasive on EA4. Mod is working correctly and blocks DDOS attacks. But it doesn't trigger any email. I have correctly mentioned DOSEmailNotify in .conf file. Also the log file are not shows any thing. What can be the issue ?

Hello,


When looking in /var/log/apache2/mod_evasive/ directory is there a log file present which indicates an error? Furthermore Have you read their documentation here: shivaas/mod_evasive

DOSEmailNotify
If this value is set, an email will be sent to the address specified whenever an IP address becomes blacklisted. A locking mechanism using /tmp prevents continuous emails from being sent.

NOTE: Be sure MAILER is set correctly in mod_evasive.c (or mod_evasive20.c). The default is "/bin/mail -t %s" where %s is used to denote the destination email address set in the configuration. If you are running on Linux or some other operating system with a different type of mailer, you'll need to change this.
Thank you,
