mod security / cpanel bugs

Discussion in 'Security' started by Blind Can See, Sep 7, 2006.

  1. After cpanel's bug (1711 open bugs as of now, sad) with its nightly update erasing custom rules, I am trying to find the best rules for the below environment

    centos 4x
    shared / resellers
    same server services, default (mail, web, database, etc)

    Gotroot is broken
    (shows 503's every time I click a link).

    Anyone, what would one suggest to use for mod security rules w/o slowing apache down dramatically? Please tip me on this

    root@server [~]# service httpd restart
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart: configuration broken, ignoring restart
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart: (run 'apachectl configtest' for details)

    root@server [~]# /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl configtest
    Syntax error on line 1193 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:
    Invalid command 'SSLEnable', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

    I cannot compile via whm apache update (shows page not found when I click "start build"). I did upcp -force on release, stable and did not fix it. I did fixeverything, did not fix that either.

    Anyone know how to correct both issues? I used easyapache and did compile with ssl module enabled, but the above error still persists.

    I also cannot use /scripts/installzendopt (but wget works on anything else). Services are up otherwise. Even if I disable APF, the script still doesn't work.
  2. I need help if someone cares

    This was missing from each SSL virtualhost

    <IfDefine SSL>

    and close the virtual host with


    Restart apache
