Fail2Ban Regex for RedHat, Fedora, CentOS and Amazon Linux 2013

…years. Moving to Amazon Web Services presented a challenge, however. I’ve yet to figure out how to use CSF on AWS, so I’ve backtracked to my old standby, Fail2Ban. “Out of the box,” Fail2Ban for CentOS & other RedHat downstream distros only provides protection against SASL login failures. But with a little work and research, one can successfully configure many more “jails” for the malicious traffic. To take… 1, 1, 0, 0 and 155.68

Apache config for Worker MPM vs Prefork MPM

…er had much better memory usage under Worker MPM, however: some scripts (squirrelmail, phpmyadmin) do not work on a per-domain basis and must be run direct to the actual server process with symlinked directories. This is much more efficient but less convenient for virtual domain owners some /dev processes took on strange group permissions, getting the gid of the first user in the apache group. browser caching was not well supported… the d… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 51.89
