Subject [users@httpd] Will the server performance be affected very much?
Date Fri, 23 May 2003 14:46:38 GMT
Hi, in order to prevent users from some specific IP addresses to access my web site, I use
"Deny From" followed with 538 IP addresses in .htaccess(all are IP numbers with the format
'xx.xx.xx.xx/xx', for example, '66.08.0.0/20'). My problem is, whether such a large group
of denied IP addresses in .htaccess will affect the server speed or performance very much,
since each time a user tries to access my website, Apache server will compare his IP address
with the denied IP addresses? Thanks.
