    On my site mmo-game.eu I am getting a good amount of SPAM comments a day (they are filtered by a wordpress plugin) and sadly slowly intrusion attempts slowly start to happen more often. The site got defaced last year for a few hours and I fear this is going to happen again sooner or later.

    This eventually lead me to install mod_security and honestly I am a bit overwhelmed atm

    basically I did these steps:

    Then I added the exceptions for wordpress:
    But now I seem to have issues with logging in to Plesk, Login page does not appear, instead the log shows:

    I have found 2 related posts here, one that suggsted to update PHP, but I have the latest PHP and the other one with ciphers did not apply.

    Can anyone point me the way on how to fix this issue?

    Thanks

    Hmh ... I have removed mod_security, but the problem persists.
    Since that did not fix it I though the repair function might do something good :D

    which resulted in

    So I thought the error might be related to MYSQL, so here is my config

    It seems that the repair stopped PSA, when I try to manually start it I get this message

    I used a backup from 2 days ago and the system is running again. But nevertheless it would be nice to know how to solve this problem.
