Enable Apache mod_security

Mod_security operates embedded into the web server, acting as a powerful umbrella – shielding applications from attacks.

In latest Jelastic version, Jelastic 1.9.2, you can add this module to your Apache server. As Jelastic gives full access to Apaches config files you can define your own custom rules in mod_security.conf. The module can be added to new environments only and it is disabled by default, but can enabled really easy by following these simple steps:

1. Log in to your Jelastic dashboard via https://app.j.layershift.co.uk/ .

2. Activate mod_security by uncommenting the two LoadModule lines in conf.d/mod_security.conf (mod_security2 + mod_unique_id):

Apache mdo_security2

3. All you need to do is remove the “#” sign and save it when you’re done:

Apache server with mod_security2

4. Finally, restart Apache and you can start using the mod_geoIP Apache module.
