    is it possible to limit a website's traffic from within ispconfig?
    i don't want to suspend the site after reaching the limit, just limit the bandwidth it gets.
    or at least split the available bandwidth equally between all the websites on the server..

    It's not included by default as far as I know. You have to manually set bandwith limits.
    You also need additional apache module mod_ratelimit.

    hm, i'm wondering what's the best way to solve this. i'm thinking about giving the site a dedicated ip adress and limit bandwidth to this ip with my firewall. that's the cleanest solution that comes to mind, if there isn't any built-in ispconfig setting for this. not sure if i want to implement apache modules and manual limits that ispconfig doesn't know about..

    Thats no problem, just install the mod_ratelimit module and then insert the settings for it in the apache directives field of the site where you want to apply the rate limit to.
