Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_evasive & mod_rewrite problems
Date Tue, 30 Jan 2007 22:06:46 GMT
        I am not to familiar with mod_evasive but after a quick read opn it
 I wondered if you had considered mod_security. The newest vesion is really
a nice piece of work and we have been using mod_security in our production
web server farm for 18+ months with no rewrite conflicts.
