    Hello Guys,

    I have setup a new server. Please let me know the exact steps to install modsecurity with required rules.

    Thanks
    Sreenie

    Does the default installation through EasyApache include a robust set of rules?

    Currently the EasyApache install does not install any rules aside from multi-part request enforcement.

    Atomicorp used to have a good free rule set but it's not available any more. They do have a paid option.

    Trustwave also has a nice paid rule set, but it is pricy. If you're hosting a lot of common CMS software it's well worth it though.

    The OWASP CRS (core rule set) is free, but can carry a very high false-positive rate until you finish whitelisting or commenting out rules that do not work for you. Be prepared to spend some time getting it configured correctly.
