Simple phpBB DDoS protection
: A quick fix for botnet attacks targeting phpbb which overload your server by limiting access to specific, high traffic countries only.
- Enables limiting your board to specific countries when the load of your server exceeds a configured average load.
- This solution is better than the one included with phpbb because the only processing php has to do is check the country of the visitor and server load, in contrast the phpbb load limiting loads all the functions and sessions to display a message, defeating its purpose.
In my opinion the modification is so simple that I chose to set up a github readme page with the instructions, which I will probably not update unless necessary.
