    Hello everyone,

    I have just installed this mod following the how-to. I'm assuming if I were to check if it is really blocking ips listed in spamhaus databases I just need to look into my apache2 log files. Also adding IPs onto the whitelist do I separate them with a white space or comma? Thanks for the awesome how-to's!

    I haven't tried this module, so I don't know if/where it logs.
    Regarding the whitelist: I'd put one IP per line.

    and doing a tail -f error_log

    I saw an entry in the logs like:

    [Mon Dec 15 22:23:05 2008] [crit] [client] mod_spamhaus: address is blacklisted. Deny connection to

    Very cool! It has help reduce the abuse directed to all of my hosted web sites :D

    Thanks! Falko for putting up this how-to.
