    ModSec appears to be working as I can see logs in apache error log, however, I'm seeing this message when i restart apache

    ModSecurity: Status engine is currently disabled, enable it by set SecStatusEngine to On.

    Can anyone advise ?

    Hello,

    The previous post is correct. That output is normal unless you decide to turn on SecStatusEngine in your Mod_Security configuration.

    Thank you.
