Solution for error ModSecurity: collections_remove_stale: Failed deleting collection

Man this error bugged me for a long time. On the internet there are no ready to use solutions found. Well now there is after long research!

Download source  Code
ModSecurity: collections_remove_stale: Failed deleting collection (name "ip", key

(Also check other files and search for "timeout". If you have a rule with timeout in it, then this rule is the culprit. Do not remove modsecurity_crs_10_setup.conf)

For some reason (bug) the files cannot be opened anymore to remove the collection.

Remove the rules and delete the ip.dir and ip.pag files. Then restart apache.
Check your apache error_log and convince yourself the error is gone.

I can live without these rules because my CSF firewall takes care of it.

Oh and you'll notice that your server has a lot more of free memory! These tracking rules consumes a lot of memory.
