    Hello, I need to enable request filtering to filter with modsecurity rules but I don't want litespeed to filter bots.

    How can I turn off the bot filtering function ?

    I'm getting false positives because of this, the current one being a clients PHP script that is beeing detected as a bot, the connection is dropped without an answer causing lots of PHP files to remain open until they time out.

    A year or so ago these were also stopping Google bots.

    Please let me know how to stop detecting and blocking bots but keeping the mod security working that I use for things like blocking brute force attacks on scripts.

    Thanks

    will litespeed filter bots automatically ? should not. more likely a mod_security rules configuration issue.

    lsws web admin->Server->Security->Block Bad Request may relate to it somehow.

    Hello,

    With no rules in mod_security and Block Bad Request set to "No", I get the following entries in my error_log file :

    If I turn off request filter I don't get these entries.
