I'm trying to set up an apache server that's distinctly vulnerable to the slowloris denial of service so I can test the results, the only problem is that I can't seem to get slowloris to actually work on apache.

What's the best way to make my settings in apache so that it become vulnerable to slowloris?

If there were a vote to close reason for "if you have to ask, you probably shouldn't" I'd vote that. Since there isn't, I'm just saying too localised. – Ben Pilbrow Sep 25 '11 at 9:59
Nah, it should be answerable (and answered) - it just belongs to "security" – the-wabbit Sep 25 '11 at 12:39
Or on - should be possible to vote to close and migrate to there. – dunxd Sep 25 '11 at 21:52

Increase Timeout to allow for a given request to hold a connection longer, and decrease MaxClients to decrease available connections.
