This installer will install hosting-firewall.tpl (nginx template) that will:
  • allow 1 http request per second per IP address (sent to your server, more precisely to your PHP-FPM)
  • allow 2 parallel http connections per IP address (sent to your PHP-FPM)
  • allow burst for 7 additional http requests (they will enter queue), first 3 will be processed immediately, 4 others will processed each request each second (so this will handle natural peaks that CMS can generate to itself)
  • if client fills allowed queue, additional requests will be denied
Generally, this nginx template will prevent bad bots to run hundreds parallel http requests against your site, which will probably cause denial-of-service on your server.

There are also 3 additional templates, with larger limit values (for example: 2 req/sec, 14 allowed requests in queue, 7 burst, 8 parallel connections).

static files are not limited in any way, except if you serve them though apache/php?

i don't know how to make whitelist.

Thank you for the quick reply.
static files are not limited in anyway (good to know this) - i didn't realize that earlier. just checked once again and found issue with another plugin on site.

regarding whitelist ip, need to set something, so it doesn't limit apache/php served pages for specific users ( even though rate limit nginx template applied for domain ).
can't we add tcp ip under firewall on myvestacp, so those ip address wont have rate limit applied ?

nope, because this is a limit on nginx layer - https://github.com/myvesta/vesta/blob/m ... pl#L10-L11
probably there is a way to exclude those lines for desired IP, but i'm sincerely not sure how.
someone should go deeply in nginx syntax to understand how to do it.
