    Hi,
    In case of accessing “System Info” under the:
    Apache Modules|Directives|Backward Compatibility(Yes|No)|IfModule(Yes|No):
    will be displayed messages described in following situations:
    – (rarely but sometimes it happens) is displayed message: “error, could not …, denied by server config” (don’t know exact phrase, I’m writing from memories)
    or
    – “if no error” is generated a link: View Visual Test and test results:
    mod_access_compat is Loaded|Order, Allow, Deny directives are supported|IfModule: Yes
    mod_authz_core is Loaded|Order, Allow, Deny directives are supported|BC: Yes|IfModule: Yes
    mod_authz_host is Loaded|Order, Allow, Deny directives are supported|BC: Yes|IfModule: Yes
    and on server are log-ed generated errors (by ex.):

     [Sat Oct 17 15:04:51.133283 2015] [access_compat:error] [pid 469725] [client MY SERVER IP] AH01797: client denied by server configuration: /home/.../public_html/wp-content/plugins/bulletproof-security/admin/mod-test/mod_access_compat-od-nc-denied.png

    another situation is that if I access the test link errors will log my ISP IP instead of my server IP (which is normal)
    Please tell me what does it all mean?!

    In general, the Apache Module Directive checks are checks to see what your server allows, has loaded or does not have loaded. The Apache Modules Directives tests create several testing scenarios to check which htaccess code is working.  Some of that code intentionally generates 403 errors so seeing 403 errors logged is expected and normal when the Apache Modules Directives tests are performed.  Your server will also log 403 errors. So yes that is normal.

    Core Enhancement: Apache Module Forward|Backward Compatibility:

    BPS automatically checks which Apache Modules are loaded on your server: mod_access_compat, mod_authz_core and mod_authz_host and checks availability|forward|backward compatibility and also IfModule conditions support to automatically create the correct htaccess code and files for your website|server. All BPS htaccess writing|updating|upgrading|new installations|creation|ip whitelisting, etc. htaccess code is automatically created based on Live BPS Apache Module and IfModule tests that are performed in BPS during BPS plugin upgrades and new installations to determine and create the correct htaccess code for each individual server|website. A new System Info feature has been added that performs Live tests with results and also includes a Visual Test – see New Feature: System Info page: for details.

    New Feature: System Info page: Apache Modules|Directives|Backward Compatibility(Yes|No)|IfModule(Yes|No): View Visual Test

    The System Info Apache Modules|Directives check checks mod_access_compat, mod_authz_core and mod_authz_host availability|forward|backward compatibility and also IfModule conditions support. A visual test page (Click the View Visual Test link) has also been created to see the Apache Module|htaccess code and checks visually for troubleshooting purposes. BPS automatically detects which Apache Modules are loaded|available on your host server and creates the correct htaccess code for you particular website|server throughout all BPS htaccess files.
