CWAF rules downloads and update
Since version 2.12 after CWAF-plugin installation rules (the latest version) are offered to be downloaded. It works as for Web-Host Management systems (WHMS) as for standalone installation.
For previous CWAF-plugin versions rules download is not offered. In this case current version is designated as 0 and available version (the latest) is offered.
Rules could be downloaded by:
1) Comodo WAF - Main - Rules (version) availbale button for WHMS (cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, WebMin);
2) /path_to_cwaf/cwaf/scripts/updater.pl for standalone installation.
If there is no new version available, current version is designated in CWAF-plugin as the latest.
To check version for standalone installation script /path_to_cwaf/cwaf/scripts/updater.pl should be run with '-v' parameter.
'/path_to_cwaf/cwaf/scripts/updater.pl -h' is help for this script.
Update could be performed the same way.
In WHMS automatic update could be performed with Comodo WAF - Configuration - Schedule Rules Update - Update config
For standalone install the script /path_to_cwaf/cwaf/scripts/updater.pl could be add to crontab
Once a week update should be perfectly enough.
Sometimes update could be failed.
1) Server waf.comodo.com is unaccessable. To check it some utilities could be used (ping, traceroute, nmap).
2) CWAF credentials (login/password) is incorrect. They could be check at project site
