Issue while installing Comodo's WAF rules in cPanel -

Error:The system experienced the following error when it attempted to install the “OWASP ModSecurity Core Rule Set V3.0” vendor: API failure: The system could not validate the new Apache configuration because httpd exited with a nonzero value. Apache produced the following error: httpd: Syntax error on line 224 of /etc/apache2/conf/httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 32 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/modsec2.conf: Syntax error on line 28 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/modsec/modsec2.cpanel.conf: Could not open configuration file /etc/apache2/conf.d/modsec_vendor_configs/OWASP/modsecurity_crs_10_setup.conf: No such file or directory 

Solution -
