Hi, i'm trying to install chevereto with the instructions from zaywalker/chevereto.
If i call the URL with /installer.php i get the cloudflare check, and nothing more happens.

DDoS protection by Cloudflare
Ray ID: 5b96fe93e8bd7281

If i try to install it with the nmtan/chevereto:installer Docker image, i get a 503 Server error, that there is no connection to the api possible.

if i try to download the installer with wget from https://www.chevereto.com/download/file/installer i get a 503: Service Temporarily Unavailable, from a Webbrowser it will Download the installer.php correctly.

I do not have any idea how to solve this.

thanks in advance

I've disabled the panic mode, it seems that the attack was on /blog (WordPress) installation and it was targeting login/ping. The machine got up to 1.6M requests in one day and it stood around 20% CPU peak. Very impressive Linode, well done.

At this time you should be able to use the API.

Meaning Linode DDOS protection isn't working as expected?
I was referring to the machine that stood. That or the attack was small. In any case, when you get 1.6 million requests within 24h and absolute no filtering, no warning, no anything then you don't have any ddos protection at all.
