Need urgent help... GoogleBot and Database sessions, my god they hitting me hard!
Posted on 2008-06-15
Hey there guys,
Man i have some serious problems here... My site sets a session record in my database when a user enters my site, this is sued for any number of things, cart items, user settings etc...
As of about 6/15/2008 10:24:37 AM Google (GoogleBot i am assuming) from the following IP 18.104.22.168 began hitting my website... They seem to be hitting each linked page of my site, currently it is 292 sessions and counting... For each page it hits it creates a new session in my database and she is filling up fast!
Does anyone know how i can prevent this... I want then to crawl my website but this is out of control... Is there a way to ensure that GoogleBot holds a single session?????
Any quick help would be great i am close to just shutting the site down until it stops hitting me...
