LOCKED OUT! Mod_Security Package….Problem? or just a newb....
Hello guys.. I don't know if anyone else has had this, and as per the title of my topic, maybe it's just a newb mistake…
today I installed the package for mod_security in the 1.2.2 package list, and got locked out of Pfsense. :-[
You do not have access to / on this server"
how do I allow myself access to my firewall?? ???
Thanks in advance.
Well…. I got in... havn't looked to see if there are any package pref.s yet that I can set up and allow myself access...
For anyone else who has problems, I used
/usr/local/sbin/httpd -k stop
i know, it just stopped the service, but I really had no idea how to do that from the SSH prompt. Since I didn't know how,
there are probably others who don't either

There's an option under the System–>Advanced tab that warns about lock-out. It says,
"By default, access to the webGUI on the LAN interface is always permitted, regardless of the user-defined filter rule set. Enable this feature to control webGUI access (make sure to have a filter rule in place that allows you in, or you will lock yourself out!).
Hint: the "set LAN IP address" option in the console menu resets this setting as well."
Play around with the various settings under the Miscellaneous heading and I think you'll find the solution.
Thanks… If that works better than changing around "deny and allow" rules ill do that... probably safer too... ;D
