    Is cPanel close to getting mod_security ready for production? I would like to use it but I'm not sure if I should since it looks like cpanel might include at a later point. Any suggestions?

    I believe mod_security has been available as an addon of cPanel and works perfectly fine IMO. If you already knew that and were talking of something else that I didnt understand well...sorry about that.

    On WHM 10.6.0 cPanel 10.8.0-R27 mod_security doesn't show properly the admin screen as it does in WHM 10.6.0 cPanel 10.6.0-C210

    Yeap, same happened to me using it as an Add on. So I decided to install it from the source and have no problems at all. You should use eth0's guide at www.eth0.us, it is very easy.

    Hello,

    remove it from WHM using the addon modules section, then reinstall mod security again from modules. Im sure your problem can be fixed with this method.

    Good luck ;)

    I have been banging my head against the wall for the past 10 days with mod_security. I think i got a pretty good install so far.

    You should use some of the files on http://www.gotroot.com/mod_security+rules
    but be advised that site is horribly slow during the daytime in the USA. I put in the individual files like "exclude", "rootkit", "badips", "blacklist2", "useragents".

    If you try to put "rules" or "blacklist" you really need to have a very powerful machine or it will slow you down alot and you will see heavy loads in httpd.

    Also be sure to read http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?p=222056#post222056
    as it has some important info on the recent AOL/CS "bcc" spamming nightmare thats going around.
