I have ipsets setup with a set of ip address that are badbots that won’t comply with robots.txt
This is a home server and these are most likely up to no good.
I came up with a script to extract ip address from my access_log then another script to take ips and import them into my blacklist set.
(see my scripts in the .htaccess thread)
I can set these up as cron jobs but I’m not sure about the following:
1) after importing/updating the set, do I need to perform a, ipset save blacklist
Since I haven’t changed the rule in iptables, do I need to run these?
2) service iptables save
3) service iptables restart
