Hi People.

I was looking on my cPanel server, and I found that the modsec scanning was disabled, when I tried to enable the server, I received that message, but the service is not changing to enabled....

Any idea what is happening?

Regards

Federico.

Hello,

I was able to successfully add that third-party ModSec vendor using the instructions on their website:

cPanel ModSecurity Vendor for cxs | ConfigServer Services Blog

Are you sure that vendor is not already enabled? Also, could you let us know the specific steps you are taking to reproduce that error message?

Thanks!
