Modsecurity On or Off.? | Forum

Dear developers,

With this simple question we would very much like to have a definite answer to.:
Should "Modsecurity" be On on a server or should it be Off, to allow Oxwall's software run optimally.?
On the server of our hosting provider it is standard On.!
But it also causes problems every now and then.!

So, what's the best.?
On or off.?

With regards,

i have it off...but you can have it on if you know how to config mod security firewall settings and add what should bee allowed and not bee allowed. i have not find a guide for this yet but maybe someone have a guide for have setup mod securtiy so it works for oxwall. 

but again set it to off and you sure you not get any problems or ask you host to config the mod security to work with your oxwall website
