Temporarily Turn off Modsec filtering

You can temporarily turn off Modsec filtering by adding a code snippet rule to your .htacces file, this can be helpful if you are triggering a number of rules which are false positives or you are unable to get the rules whitelisted whilst you do your development.

Add into .htaccess

<IfModule mod_security.c>
	SecFilterEngine Off
	SecFilterScanPOST Off

This should be removed once you have done what you need and the site is subject again to the modsec rules in place.
