    Question CSF Firewall Question

    On my VPS, I was having attacks so I installed CSF firewall which did a great job. However on a few of my sites, specifically proxy ones, every second or third page you visit will be a 403 Forbidden error. After about 20-30 seconds, you can refresh and it goes away. I suspect CSF is causing this, because it just started to happen after I installed it. Is it thinking there are too many connections or too much bandwidth and its blocking me or other users just using the proxy? Is there a way to make it slightly more tolerant?

    You might want to start by looking at your apache error_log and looking for the 403 requests. If you don't see any, they may be remote errors, if not, then you will want to check permissions/ownership/htaccess on that directory.

    I agree completely, you need more information before you can conclude that, and the Apache error log is the place to go there.

    Permission/Ownership is not the case. No files or directories have changed and it didn't used to be this way. The only thing added was CSF and I lowered maxclients in httpd.conf.

    I will check apache log, but its gotta be one of the two right?
