mod_security and ISPmanager

Unread post by rhopek »

It appears that because ISPmanager is called via '/manager/ispmgr', the entry for '<LocationMatch /manager/>' in 10_asl_rules.conf is causing some requests to fail, i.e., when trying to edit files in ISPmanager's File Manager, you get "You don't have permission to access /manager/ispmgr on this server.".

So, a) is there a way to preempt that Location entry with one that is specifically for '/manager/ispmgr' that is then ignored/permitted, and b) in this case the report of the problem was with a file editor, so is there another section we should be looking that might be interfering?

LocationMatch is used to exclude rules, or to change rules. So it sounds like you may have a false positive. Could you send us the audit payload for that event?
