For cPanel & WHM version 62
My server is under a SYN attack. What can I do?
If you believe that you are under a SYN attack, run the
netstat -an |grep :80 |more command.
A list that is similar to the following example will appear, with several hundred entries:
If your kernel was built with
syncookie support, run the
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_syncookies command as the
Yes. For more information, read our SSL certificate documenation.
How can I view the contents of my SSL certificates? How can I know whether my SSL certificate and key paired correctly?
To view the contents of a certificate, run the
openssl x509 -noout -text -in filename.crt command.
To view the contents of a private key, run the
openssl rsa -noout -text -in filename.key command.
If the modulus number and exponent of the certificate and key match, they paired correctly. If not, they are mismatched and Apache cannot start with SSL enabled.
