I would like to block these IP ranges as they belong to notorious XLhost which clickbomb on adsense. I tried doing deny from <ipaddress> it seems it is generating exit signal Segmentation fault (11). So is there any other way to block these IP address range?

generating exit signal Segmentation fault


This appears to be due to a PHP error.

I tried doing deny from <ipaddress>


Not being familiar with PHP, are you referring to using 'ipaddress' in PHP or htaccess or perhaps even using the Control Panel to insert the IP ranges?

Try denying the ranges with either 'deny from' or mod_rewrite.

In addition, explore the possibility of error documents (i. e., loops (500 errors) caused by the lack of) generating exit signal Segmentation fault or server overload.

You've posted the question in the Apache subforum. But you forgot to say exactly how you're denying them-- directly via some Apache mod, or indirectly such as in a php script or a Control Panel setting. Is it your own server or htaccess? Where, exactly, are you getting the error message?

(And what's with (11)? Eleven whats? It's all over the place in Apache docs, but they don't deign to explain what it means :()

I tried blocking them 1st via .htaccess like this

Order Allow,Deny
Deny from 209.51.197.0/24
Deny from 209.190.121.32/27
Deny from 209.190.0.0/17
Deny from 173.45.64.0/18
Deny from 64.79.64.0/19
Deny from 64.79.89.0/19
Deny from 64.79.85.0/19
Deny from 207.182.128.0/19
Deny from 173.244.160.0/19
Deny from 206.222.0.0/19
Deny from 207.182.128.0/19
Deny from 209.190.116.0/24
Deny from 209.190.70.0/24
Deny from 209.51.192.0/19
Deny from 5.101.144.0/21
Deny from 94.229.64.0/20
Deny from 173.209.49.0/24
Deny from 88.150.131.0/24
Deny from 68.168.114.0/24
Deny from 62.210.128.0/17
Deny from 62.212.64.0/19
Allow from all

But somehow it is creating segmentation fault (11). but without these deny line all thing are working fine,
