Hi @ChenDaMin

there are some other topics, may be the same problem. Caddy plus that `ridiculously excessive traffic'.


Do you use V2Ray?

yes, I use V2ray + Caddy

This is a new setup server, i don’t understand “ridiculously excessive traffic” .

Looks like a general problem with that V2ray, so that tool produces an endless loop.

wait,… I try close v2ray. and try again.

I closed v2ray but the issue still exists. :joy:


We’re aware of issues with V2Ray. Until we explicitly remove the ratelimit for your IP, you will continue receiving the ratelimit.

Can you please post the following information:

  • Your full Caddyfile (without changes)
  • Your full logs (from your Caddy process log and/or systemd/journalctl)
  • Full and complete error messages

It’s not a V2Ray issue. The systemd config file for Caddy (caddy.service) is the problem (see here: and should have been fixed. If you use the script by 233boy, upgrading to the latest version might help. Of course, your ip ban needs to be removed first, I think.
