xf Proxy Function triggers Mod_security


I have a Problem while using the internal xf Proxy function for links and Pictures.
Everytime the Server blocks it - but i'm not realy sure to disable mod_sec rule for this, does has anyone a idea for this ?

Well-known member
This is to be expected with unmodified mod_security rules. Just exempt (whitelist) "proxy.php" from all rules and it will work. You also can disable mod_security completely, because XF has no security holes.
