I am running a host and just updated mod_security. It "broke" a CMS in multiple sites. I want to white list all sub-directories named CMS. How do I specify a rule to do that?

  • I don;t think regex are allowed in apache cfg files, though wildcard works; search in this direction

  • <Directory> and <DirectoryMatch> support regular expressions, see httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#directorymatch
