Description

This function discards staged rule changes for a ModSecurity™ configuration file.

 Staged rule changes reside in a .STAGE file (for example, the staged changes for the example.conf file exist in the example.conf.STAGE file). This function deletes the .STAGE file that corresponds to the configuration file that you specify.

To stage rule changes, call WHM API 1's modsec_add_rule function.
