    Dear,

    I didn't found mod_security, but not mod_security2 is already installed on my VPS Server WHM in EA4.

    But, What is different mod_security and mod_security2? Or it is same?

    Hello,

    Mod_Security version 1 was used in the past with Apache 1.x. Generally, when you read about Mod_Security for use with EasyApache 4 in modern versions of cPanel, it's referring to Mod_Security 2.

    Thank you.

    You mean,
    Mod_Security version 1 was Apache 1.X
    Mod_Security version 2 was Apache 2.X

    That right. Thanks for the info. I'll to keep knowledge about that.
