In the process of learning more about how to survive simple DoS attack for my Apache server, I found some script to initiate attack on my own server and I notice that Apache returns error code 403 after a few attempts (instead of returning 200).
I guess it is good that Apache does that but I do not understand why it does that. Is there any configuration that dictate this behavior? I actually want to turn off this behavior completely if I can.
Please help me understand it!
