    Why I can't see modsec on cPanel?

    My VPS installed Mod Security and it uses basic configuration. I can see it in the WHM plugin page. However I can't see it in the cPanel security page/tab. Why is that?

    How do I fix this issue?

    If I'm not mistaken, it's not supposed to be in your cPanel security tab.
    It's a plugin and is only accessible via WHM.

    Mod Security is available in WHM.
    I remember it does not come default on new cpanel install.

    ModSecurity is WHM plugin and should manage via WHM. there is no need to add it to cPanel interface.

    When you enable Mod_security from easy apache, the default configuration white lists localhost from all checks which is a security hole.

    Yes, localhost should whitelist for some rules and not all

    Just installing mod_sec via EasyApache, or the WHM plugin, doesn't do anything.
    It needs rules added. That's the hard part.
