WAF is not free.  You have to have a minimum of PRO Plan.

Cloudflare sucks anyway.  Frequent outages and outdated caching, slow page loads....the list goes on and on.  Just search for cloudflare problems on your favorite search engine.

As thus issue has arisen on a mother thread...I am updating this one as well. I think the link below might help streamline the process of whitelisting mod security rules for wordpress.

Also, an update on this...

If one goes CWP dashboard>Security>mod security

click on the domain for which the problem exists and under "Actions" turn off Mod_Security, the problem immediately goes away in Wordpress.

For the time being, until i can find the right set of whitelist rules i need for Comodo WAF...

i am leaving Mod Security turned off for the problematic domain with the problematic wordpress installation, and instead using Wordfence Firewall plugin inside Wordpress itself to control all Firewall and security functions (which is quite powerful and does the trick at the "work face"

with mod security you will always need to whitelist some rules per domain so you simply need to learn how to do that!

ModSecurity rules can't be for everyone as each website is different (using different plugins, mods, themes) that is the reason why per domain whitelisting exists.

The best rules are the one OWASP has as they are much more strict and for each website requires detailed testing and more than several rules to be whitelisted...but they provide the best security as they block much more things.

In short, if you want higher and better security you should use more advanced and more complicated rules.
Whitelisting is so simple and requires less than a minute to check and whitelist some rules.

Example procedure
- check error logs for a domain having an issue: tail -n 100 /usr/local/apache/domlogs/DOMAIN.error.log
- go to mod_security: click on "Edit rules" of some domain and simply click on "Add ID Rule"

That's all good and well, however on an already functioning system that was happily singing along, this shouldn't have happened in the first place.
