    Am I being DDOS'ED

    Hi members, my site micromkv.com start loading slowly due to high traffic. The resources on VPS all used up. Basically the 1GB RAM and now it's loading very very slowly!

    So, Am I being DDOS'ed?! And If yes, how to check that?

    I've Kloxo instead of Cpanel.

    All help will be appreciated.

    It doesn't appear that you are under attack as your site does load. Since you're using Wordpress, you may want to consider wp-supercache in mod_rewrite mode, I think that will greatly speed up your site, and will save you some memory.

    It seems to be slow for me.. there is a little delay in loading pages.

    Could you run the following commands to see what's out of the ordinary?

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Find out wich IP has the most connections.

    netstat -ntu | awk '{print $4}' | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

    Find out which IP is making the most connections.

    netstat -ntu | awk '{print $5}' | cut -d: -f1 | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

    If you don't know how to run these commands - you have no business administering a server.

    Just my two cents - sorry if you disagree.

    You have to run them via SSH/Putty.

    If you have no idea how to do this.. I'd suggest you hire a management team to look after such things.. as it's not a good idea to touch root tasks without knowledge.

    Are you logged in as root? If not try that and run the commands.

    How much CPU does your VPS have allocated? I'd recommend reviewing your Apache domlogs, if you notice a lot of POST requests then chances are you are being brute forced.

    Yes, it seems to be some type of flood, maybe http flood, causing all the resources to be used, making your server to get really slow.

    I think he is on shared hosting. Better contact your provider and they are in a good position to tell you why your website is loading slowly.

    If you root access to the server login as root with putty or if you use linux ssh client (OpenSSH).

    Run the commands as suggest will give you IP's and the uniq -c adds up how many of the same iP are connected,

    Any IP's over 8-12 connections could be the DDOS ip's, but complex ddos attacks may only connect 2-3 times from each ip over a range of ips.

    So if that fails, then have a look at htop, vnstat -l -i <network interface>, or you can use nethogs.

    Monitor and try to figure it out,

    Contact your provider as well as it sounds you need lots of help.

    Google "Am I being DDOS" and you get a range of results that will help you.

    As I read above you are using Wordpress would recommend to install captcha to avoid registration and comment spamming. Yes Super cache plugin would help to avoid load on your server. Still not satisfied you can go for a CDN service.
