Makes sense. Thanks! I'd bet some of those were Joomla specific exceptions, so I'm going to have to check and see if any of those sites are broken or partly broken...not a biggie
We've been phasing out LocationMatch for several years, so its unlikely any of those would effect a modern application like Joomla. Most of the tuning these days using rule syntax.
1) ModSecurity: ipMatch Internal Error: Invalid ip address.
So assuming you only have our rules loaded, that would means either you are missing the /etc/asl/whitelist file, or your windows system doesnt support IPv6. The only uses of that directive are for the /etc/asl/whitelist file, so if you have enabled the 00_asl_whitelist.conf file you may need to modify that to fit a path that works for windows.
Outside of that, its only used to detect localhost for a few other rules and the pattern match is always 127.0.0.1,::1
Does your system support IPv6?
2) ModSecurity: collection_retrieve_ex: Unable to retrieve collection (name "global", key "global"). Use SecDataDir to define data directory first.
So that means you've got some third party rules installed, we do not use that. But you need to define SecDataDir anyway so modsecurity can write its audit_logs. But nevertheless, that error means you're using some rules other than ours, we do not use collections. So you can only get that if you are using rules that do. So you'll either need to remove those rules, or you'll need to ask the authors of those rules for help with their rules.
