What happens when I reach my bandwidth limit for the month? Will my site continue to be served and I will be charged for the extra bandwidth or something else?
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Can anyone Help?
Once we log in to the server using SSH what commands do you all recommend running to determine where issues are coming from?
Also, are there any resources you would point us to so we can learn more about how to handle downtime for our websites?
The website is running Joomla 2.5
Now I continue to get about 200 queries / attacks every night. I've already sent many IP's and even entire countries to deny from IP address using .htaccess. The blocked ones go to error 403, which actually shows the users's IP, announces that they are illegally attacking and then hits the user's own IP address with an http request after 5 seconds.
If they go to 404, I add that country, or IP to my block list. My HTTP traffic eased from 15 GB a month to about 500 MB and the site is not even the real company's site yet and so the traffic is 99% attacks.
Is there anyway to head them off more at the pass and stop them before even hitting the site and generating a 403 error and using my bandwidth?
Also updated robots.txt to stop the spiders from crawling non-existent forums I saw in the logs.
Any other ideas???
