Hi Ryan,

I've downloaded the latest pack.   Do you recommend for me to remove all the /etc/httpd/modsecurity.d/base_rules/ rules and replace with the modsecurity-crs_2.0.8/base_rules ?

I've noticed that in the action they all have the pass. should I change to something else?

While there is a version of the Core Rule Set (CRS) that is bundled with the
modsecurity source archive, it is highly recommended that you using the
current version from over at the OWASP Project site -

You can read a bit on the Setup/Documentation tabs for data.  I would also
recommend that you sign up for the OWASP CRS mail-list to stay up-to-date on
rule updates and to ask rule-related questions there -
