    In your apache configuration file you would comment out the LoadModule and AddModule line pertaining to mod_security.

    If this is a cpanel box the Apache configuration file is located at:


    The two lines to comment out would look something like:

    LoadModule security_module libexec/
    AddModule mod_security.c

    Just add a # to the beginning of the line. Save the file and restart Apache. Apache should restart unless you have directives in your configuration that require mod_security and they are not in If blocks. Then to re-enabled mod_security remove the comments and restart Apache.
