I’ve been stress testing on our website by posting form data through CURL (I set up a separate server on Linode to create 100 instances of CURL to hit our website, with a sleep time of 1 second on each instance).
I noticed that after around 5K form submissions through CURL I’m now getting blocked. I can submit form data through my web browser just fine, just not through CURL. I even tried on my local machine.
I whitelisted the IP of the server that’s sending these CURL requests, but no go. Is there something else I should be doing? I’ve been searching through the previous threads, but maybe my search query is incorrect, because I couldn’t find anyone else with my exact issue.
Also, one more question: I upgraded to the Pro plan. Is this effective immediately?
