    Hello ! :)

    I have a server which is running with WHM/Cpanel.

    I would like to install mod_security on my server. But how can I achieve this ?

    - I've seen there is a "Manage plugins" section, but it says "This is deprecated. Use easyapache3 to install mod_security as it is now supported without having to use the addon interface in easyapache3" but I don't understand what is said.

    How do I access easyapache3 ?

    - Is it possible, and a good idea, to install mod_security without using WHM/CPanel for the installation ?

    Thank you ! :)

    make sure you are using a decent and up to date ruleset with mod security, gotroot's are pretty good:
