    Hi. Im having trouble configuring Mod_security...

    I know it is installed in Cpanel... But it has limited Security Rules... went to Mod Security site and finished in this link below which is sort of confusing:

    http://www.atomicorp.com/wiki/index...#Special_notes_for_CPANEL_users_not_using_ASL


    confusing because I followed the install process (to reinstall Mod Security) but I got stuck at Step 4:

    chown nobody.nobody /var/asl/data/msa
    chown nobody.nobody /var/asl/data/audit
    chown nobody.nobody /var/asl/data/suspicious
    chmod o-rx -R /var/asl/data/*

    the directory doesn't even exist... obviously as the title of the document is "CPANEL_users_not_using_ASL"

    Has anybody succesfully set up the rules from Atomic?

    Please note that Atomic has its own support forum at the following location:

    atomicorp.com • Index page

    Since these rules are outside the cPanel provided mod_security configuration, you'd probably find the best results asking this question at their forum.

    Unless you are using some sort of update script, you would refresh the files manually. It's not too awful tough.

    Short of that, a closer look at the same website provides these details for you:
