- I am under DDoS. What can I do? 3 answers
I have a problem with a LAMP server where Apache keeps getting lots of request "POST / HTTP/1.1" but always from new IP addresses. Blocking the IPs using iptables obviously won't help. Any ideas how to block or even reduce this traffic? I cannot install a squid proxy or similar in front of Apache, nor can I install an external firewall. Do I have to contact the ISP where the server is hosted?
