ModSecurity on Debian Squeeze
I found an article on, but it's older article and needs this to Debian Squeeze. Could anybody make a tutorial to me? Thanks!

You does not read comments there. Read last comment:

"Tried this on Squeeze for apache2:
# apt-get install libapache2-mod-security
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libapache2-mod-security

So tried your one:
apt-get install libapache-mod-security
Which was installed into the mods-enabled dir.
Sadly, your Sec* entries above fail:
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Syntax error on line 219 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf:
Invalid command 'SecFilterEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
Action 'configtest' failed."

That could be problem if i do this. Because I need a tutorial for this.

Did you enable the module after installation? It's probably something like

a2enmod mod-security

a2enmod security
Restart Apache afterwards.

Hi, Falko's Tutorial for installing mod security was good in 2007 but is now completely obsolete.
Mod security has undergone many changes since then, and needs a totally different installation.

Rather use this how-to:
