HOW TO: Disabling mod_security on your domain(s)

The mod_security feature can be disabled for your domain(s) by logging into cPanel, clicking on the "ModSecurity" icon in the Security box, and from there you can disable it for any or all of your domains.

NOTE: mod_security is a feature used to prevent hackers from exploiting unsecured scripts using common methods, it's not a 100% foolproof method of security and it is advised to only use software you trust and make sure you always have the latest updates from the software developers. While mod_security does offer an additional level of defense against hackers, it is also known to sometimes cause software to stop working so if you find your software is not working properly you might want to inquire with the developer to see if there is a workaround for the default OWASP ModSecurity™ Core Rule Set.
