I found that an IP is hitting my opac continuously, due to which CPU use is very high, and it makes the entire Koha opac and staff client very slow.

I tried following the links but could not resolve the issue.


I am also not able to locate the file .htaccess in mu ubuntu 18.04 with koha 20.04 Can anyone how to resolve this?
