I'm trying to get my users lat and lng from their address using google's geocoding api but when mod security is enabled it prevents it and the script timesout. How can I add an exception by ip or domain for this or just remove whatever configuration that makes mod_security do this? I am using the OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set Project
[Sun Jun 26 13:13:14 2011] [error] [client 126.96.36.199] ModSecurity: Unable to retrieve collection (name "ip", key "188.8.131.52_fc2ccdca4bf1fc8585b77c1444811dedd59da612"). Use SecDataDir to define data directory first. [hostname mydomain.com"] [uri "/admin/geocoding.php"] [unique_id "EIpfP38AAAEAAA2eAT0AAAAK"]
I added the line
but now I don't get anything in the error log but the same behaviour!
