I see this at the top of my modsec config in WHM
# ModSecurity whitelist file
and this also in my modsec plugin control
Doesn't this mean it is set up properly?
you can also use the examples in the wiki to setup whitelisting
This is where I got the idea from.
If you are not using ASL, simply add your IP address to the file:
And restart Apache.
Note: For this rule to work, in ASL you must have the MODSEC_00_WHITELIST ruleset enabled.
If you are not using ASL, then you must have the 00_asl_whitelist.conf ruleset loaded.
# Do not edit this file!
# This file is generated and changes will be overwritten.
This is what I see inside the modsec/00_asl_whitelist.conf when I click the edit button in WHM plugin control so I assume I must add the ip address range in modsec2.whitelist.conf correct?Udate:
I tried to add the ip range into modsec2.whitelist.conf and received this error so you must be right in your assumption on it not being set up right. I have no idea how to set it up right if I cannot do it inside of WHM so I guess I'm hooped.
