What is the best web server firewall for nginx?

  • Posted on February 9, 2014

I’m having hard time with setting mod_security module for my web server nginx. I get a lot of issues and errors before compiling the files.

I followed a lot of tuts on the net, but mostly end up with either none working process or cut steps that I don’t understand what to do next…

any idea??

Thanks

I’d enjoy finding a solution to this as well… at the very least an alternative to mod_security that plays well with nginx. I remember reading that mod_security was (or is now) compatible with nginx? Not sure though as it seems one would need to have both apache and nginx to have this as a solution… in the meantime I have gone the money route by installing Dome9.

If anyone has a direction to point on this matter… how wonderful that would be!

Very interested here!!
