mod_security rules or alternates

    It been discussed a couple of times before but there's never been a definite solution.

    I'm hosted on LiquidWeb and they use an over-aggressive rule set of mod_security.
    Unfortunately, and although I have while listed many triggered rules, XenForo still doesn't play well with it. So my question is simple, does anyone have a proper solution or a proper set of rules to be white listed in order for mod_security to work well with XenForo?

    Or if you have disabled mod_security on your community via htaccess, what security alternate do you use?

    I totally removed mod_security a couple of weeks after I installed Xenforo, as it was triggering CSF and blocking members from the server.

    Are you using any alternate to it? Cause mod_security does provide one hell of a security.

    Nope, not using anything in it's place.

    Did you uninstalled it altogether or just disabled it for your community via htaccess?
