Blocking abusive traffic

Tue Nov 12, 2019 7:17 pm
Our site is currently experiencing very high levels of abusive traffic. I am thinking of using RSFirewall to protect our site.

Is there a better option that we can use that compliments Virtueplanet components?

Any advice will be appreciated..

No, as of now we do not have any such extension.

I think the excessive traffic is being generated by robots and search engine crawlers. You can find the name of these robots (User Agent) in your server log. Then block them in .htaccess. Here is an example - stackoverflow.com/questions/10735766/blo...th-htaccess#10736599

For Google, you can regulate the crawling rate in Search Console - search.google.com/search-console
