Does anyone have or know of a simple, up to date how to for installing mod-security on cPanel and configuring it after install?

Every how to on the web I've found is at least two years old and is based on a mod-security addon function in cPanel which doesn't exist anymore.

There are a couple of free add ons to simplify selecting rule files (configserver's for example) but there's no documentation on which rules a cPanel system "should" be using and so on.
