Mod_security template for Joomla 1.5?

Post by ddrager » Fri Aug 24, 2007 2:55 pm


I was just wondering if anyone has developed a good mod_security configuration for servers running Joomla! 1.5. There are some sample ones out there that work but you need to comment out several sections to allow for Joomla functions to pass through.

If not I'll probably write one up after I'm done with it. I just didn't want to re-invent the wheel! :)

Hi Dave,

To my knowledge, there is not a good one out there yet.  If you put one together though please let us know so that we can publish it.
