Dear Support,
after updating to csf v9.10 custom regex rules stop triggering regex.custom.pm
i use centos 7 with plesk and mod_Security

regex.custom.pm rule:

Code: Select all

      if (($lgfile eq $config{CUSTOM1_LOG}) and ($line =~ /(\S+) - - \[\S+\s+\S+\] "(GET|POST) \/ HTTP\/\S+" \d+ \d+ \S+\s+"\S+ \(compatible\; (MJ12bot|Baiduspider|AhrefsBot)\/\S+ \S?http\S+\)"/)) {
         return ("GET POST HEAD Attempt From: $1","MJ12bot-Baiduspider-AhrefsBot","1","1");
    }
CUSTOM1_LOG: /var/www/vhosts/system/*/logs/access_*log

Instead of using

Code: Select all

($lgfile eq $config{CUSTOM1_LOG})
try using this instead:

Code: Select all

($globlogs{CUSTOM1_LOG}{$lgfile})

Hi, I have already tried it and unfortunately it didn't work.
I have also re-installed csf v9.10 from scratch and rebooted server.
When i enter multiple directories path in custom_logs it doesn't watch those logs. in fact it watches some of those logs randomly! Sometime it blocks and sometimes it doesn't block. I can see it reading and searching those logs.
CUSTOM1_LOG: /var/www/vhosts/system/*/logs/access_*log

On another server I don't use multiple directories path in custom_logs I use single directory path and it works fine!
I think something happens when i enter a path with multiple directories to watch.
This specific path has about 80 directories inside vhosts/*/logs for csf to watch!

Any ideas?
Regards
