    We recently upgraded to 11.25-R42399. At this time we also upgraded PHP to 5.3.1, Apache remained at 2.2.14. Since this upgrade the Mod Security plugin within the WHM has not worked properly.

    Clicking on the 'Mod Security' link under the 'Plugins' menu simply displays this message:

    Normally you would get an interface to search blocked requests or modify rules. This is no longer the case.

    I have also noticed that however Mod Security log data was being written to the 'modsec' database is also broken. The last entry in this database is from just before the upgrade took place. I know that Mod Security has blocked requests since then because you can see them in the audit log as well as the Apache logs.

    So, in short Mod Security is still functioning, but it's integration with the WHM seems to be broken. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Case 554014 currently open with cPanel Support.

    Looks like somehow the password used by the modsecparse.pl script and the MySQL modsec user did not match. I'm not quite sure how the passwords were changed on either side, but resetting it corrected the issue.
