mod_dosevasive meets debian
I have recently installed the latest sarge apache package. I am now wanting to install an apache module to prevent DoS attacks. mod_dosevasive seems like what everyone is using.
Now I've worked out that with debian you need to run the command modules-config, and that before that you need a line in a .info file. And the other .info files all refer to a .so file. But I downloaded the tar file and it only had .c files in it.
Now I guess I could look at compiling the source etc., but I would have thought it would all be a bit easier than this. How do debian users normally install mod_dosevasive?
I thought about somehow installing the rpm, and was then pointed to using alien, but then thought that this was a very strange road I'm travelling, so I must be doing something wrong.
Can anyone help me here?
