    Recommended mod_security?


    Just wondering if fellow hosters are willing to share their settings for mod_security. I have a tough setting but finds that some script give back 500 errors. What are your thoughts on mod_security and would you recommend it?

    You can try basic setting.

    Also, it is good to learn mod_security rules because you will need this later to add additional custom rules to protect your server and scripts of your clients.

    Your best bet, whether your work the rule set yourself from site or pull in rules from another party, is review the audit logs on a regular basis to find what rules work best for your customers.

    You should also be reviewing your logs to see what mod_security is missing which other rule sets may not cover; and add those, test those as needed.

    Thank you.

    Regardless, do not let all the very specific talk daunt you. mod_security is a great tool and I recommend you employ it. - Shared and Reseller Hosting Solutions on cPanel/WHM Linux Servers - Discount ModernBill Licenses, Hosted Installations, and Professional Services
