How To
What Modsec profiles are used if I select to include this in my package. I like the potential potection this application offers and see that there are various types and levels of profile available, some by subscription.
Would be good to know what the default is and how often it is updated and if through the .htaccess file I can add my own.
Has anybody had experiance of using Modsec on this hosting enviroment??

Hello ukphotoguy, and thanks for your question.

We do run mod_security on all of our servers, and it's enabled on all accounts by default. Depending on your application's needs, sometimes it's necessary to turn mod_security off, or disable specific rules that are triggering it.

You can utilize our Modsec Manager plugin for cPanel to disable or enable mod_security for any of your domains. The following guide explains how to do this:

Disable mod_security via Modsec Manager for cPanel

If you need to disable specific rules instead of disabling mod_security all together, then you would want to submit a support request once you receive a 406 error attempting a request. These are generally the errors triggered by mod_security, and once one is triggered we would then be able to review the logs to see what rule number it was for you.

In order to submit a ticket, please shoot an e-mail to ( being sure to include your username, and the original cPanel password of your account or the last 4 digits of the credit card on file for verification.

Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.
