    Nginx 1.13.x
    MariaDB 5.5
    as the nginx.conf comments suggest uncomment the relevant line http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_limit_conn_module.html#limit_conn_zone

    from
    Code:
    ## limit number of concurrency connections per ip to 16
    ## add to your server {} section the next line
    ## limit_conn limit_per_ip 16;
    ## uncomment below line allows 500K sessions
    # limit_conn_log_level error;
    #######################################
    # use limit_zone for Nginx <v1.1.7 and lower
    # limit_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=limit_per_ip:16m;
    #######################################
    # use limit_conn_zone for Nginx >v1.1.8 and higher
    # limit_conn_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=limit_per_ip:16m;

    As to CSF that RESTRICT_SYSLOG option is mainly intended for shared hosting environments. As Centmin Mod is not intended for share hosting (FAQ 2 at http://centminmod.com/faq.html), it doesn't apply as oneself would be the only one accessing the server via SSH. So leaving RESTRICT_SYSLOG=0 and living with the *WARNING* RESTRICT_SYSLOG is disabled. message is fine.
