    From security and performance point of view, what is the best way to run mod_security in cPanel servers?

    - cPanel way: compiling apache with mod_security support?
    - Litespeed way: placing mod_security rules in request filter fields?

    Ruining in cPanel way I'm getting some weird issues, litespeed is blocking some actions but if I switch to Apache, the same action works fine.

    This test is blocked when I'm using apache but no when I'm using litespeed wget http://localhost/foo.php?foo=http://fakeattacker.com

    For now I set mod_sec rules in litespeed request filter and I didn't notice any problem but I'm unsure if is doing something at all

    BTW I'm using gotroot paid rules
