hi there, im trying to implement mod security on a virtual server running apache 1.3 to do some spam blocking. It works perfectly however no sooner i turn on the module the apache processes run high like 90-99% and possibly forks the apache processes. But when i turn it off again, things run back to 1%.

I even tried just turning the module on with no rules set even for logs and it was doing it, what exactly are the default options if anyway so i can turn them all off and try again. I dont understand why it would be doing this, i have them running on dual xeon servers so obviouslly no problems there, this is a virtual server so limited resources obviouslly.

let me know thanks..
