Hello @rajeshsingh,

Please note that the version of OJS that you’re using is no longer supported by PKP. I recommend that you upgrade to the newest version of OJS, as it is possible that your issue will be resolved by upgrading. However, other community members may wish to offer assistance.

Upgrading instructions are available in the PKP Administrator’s Guide and as part of our [Upgrade Guide] (

Information about the latest version of OJS can be found on the PKP Website

Hi @rajeshsingh,

While OJS doesn’t include rate limiting out of the box, it can be implemented using a server-side security tool such as fail2ban or mod_security.
