Default Random Access forbidden while reloading websites.

Hi all,

I have a strange issue with 3 independent sites i host. Every time i reload a site couple of times a get "Access forbidden" message.

On one site images sometime loads, and sometimes they don't.

Im running ISPConfig 3.0.2 on Debian Lenny, all the sites are php fast-cgi + suexec.

The message in error log of apache is "client denied by server configuration"

Other sites works perfectly. Anyone with similar experience ?

Kind regards

I have found that apache2 module mod_dosevasive is causing this strange behavior.

Adding the following to vhost file resolves my problems:

<IfModule mod_dosevasive.c>
DOSHashTableSize 3097
DOSPageCount 5
DOSSiteCount 100
DOSPageInterval 1
DOSSiteInterval 1
DOSBlockingPeriod 2
This happens with: Gallery2, Cms Made Simple (with Cataloger module) and OsCommerce.

If someone experiences same issues, this is the solution
