Tuning mod_evasive to the needs of your server will help prevent legitimate traffic from being blocked. Mod evasive will log to /var/log/apache2/mod_evasive by default. If you see legitimate traffic being blocked, you will need to adjust your mod_evasive settings. The steps below cover how to do this.
1) Log in to the server via SSH, or access the Terminal from WHM.
