    I have a forum running IPB 3.2.
    When I click on a link an within about 2-3 seconds again most of the times I get a 403 error. Is there some kind of restriction in the number of connections you can make in a short time? This is quite annoying.

    The error log says:

    Code:
    [Wed Jan 04 16:40:29 2012] [error] [client x.x.x.x] client denied by server configuration: /var/www/xxxxxxxx.nl/web/
    [Wed Jan 04 16:40:32 2012] [error] [client x.x.x.x] client denied by server configuration: /var/www/xxxxxxxx.nl/web/
    
    What can I do about this?

    Do you have apache mod_evasive installed? Thats a dos protection modile and when you set the limits for that module too low, then you can get the behaviour you described.

    I think that might be installed, how can I put up the limits?
