 Description 
 =========== 

 mod_evasive is a very simplistic module to limit connections per IP. 

 Options 
 ======= 

 evasive.max-conns-per-ip 

   limits the number of connections per IP. 

   e.g.: :: 
  
     evasive.max-conns-per-ip = 3 

   You may also want to set up conditionals IMPORTANT : 

   Please read the limitations section. 

 Limitations 
 =========== 

 One must note that the mod_evasive does not obey conditionals. 
 Also, in only respects the first time it is set. 

 eg.: :: 

     

   evasive.max-conns-per-ip = 1 
    
     

   $HTTP["host"] == "example.com" { 
       
     evasive.max-conns-per-ip = 2 
     999 
   } 
     
   $HTTP["host"] == "example2.com" { 
       
     evasive.max-conns-per-ip = 0 
     100 
   } 

   0 means unlimited. 
   
  
 In this case, default sites get 1 connections, regardless of example.com 2 and example2.com unlimited. 
  


 or example2.com, mod_evasive will be set to 1.
