Hello,

You can increase the Deny IP limit either through WHM or from server backend via SSH.

1. Log into your server via SSH

2. Edit csf.conf using vi editor

vi /etc/csf/csf.conf

3. Increase DENY_IP_LIMIT value

Change DENY_TEMP_IP_LIMIT if you want to increase temporary IP deny list.

4. Save the file and exit.

5. Run the command 'csf-r' to restart the firewall
