    Question How To Stop mod Security From Blocking Google's Crawler?


    Mod_security is always blocking googlebot whenever it wants to crawl this sites on my server and this is affecting the page rank of the websites.

    How do I configure Mod_sec to ignore google? I use mod_security2.

    The second beast forces all people important and unimportant, rich and poor, free and slaves to be marked on their right hands or on their foreheads so that no one may buy or sell unless he has the mark, which is the beast's name or the number of its name.

    Something like this, on top of your rules, should do it :

    SecRule REQUEST_HEADERS:User-Agent "compatible; Googlebot" "nolog,allow"

    However, removing the current rule that blocks google would be much better though.
