Problems with mod_security

Some hosts have an Apache module installed by default called mod_security. It blocks big POST requests, meaning it doesn’t let Mountee save bigger templates files. If you’ve experienced this problem, Mountee will have alerted you.

The Solution

You need to turn off the Security Filter engine by adding the following to your .htaccess file:

   <IfModule mod_security.c>
       SecFilterEngine Off

Alternatively, you can use “SecFilterScanPOST Off“ if you don’t want to completely disable it.
