  • Targeted abuse causing my server to shutdown

    Recently, two of my forums have been getting extremely high server loads that I believe to be targeted abuse. The loads are so high and happen so quickly that it causes my Virtuozzo container to stop itself, and minutes upon restarting the server, the same problem happens all over again.

    My hosting support tells me the high loads are coming from the vbulletin part of my server.

    I have upgraded to the latest 3.8.7 PL3 on both boards but the problem still remains.

    Where should I begin to look to fix this crippling issue?

    Thank you in advance

    Check your addons.


    vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

      And install Bad Behavior to block bots.
      Also check for open relays.
      Close all ports that you do not need.

        Vbulletin by itself wouldn't be the problem, it's got to be a plugin or add-on (if it is indeed bulletin related). Have you tried disabling all products/plugins and monitored server loads to see if it still happens?
