Yesterday I installed a mybb on hostgator, but problem is I cant change any settings whan I activate something and press apply, It wont change.  I have delete settings.php but it got regenerated so its not problem in permissions. I have ask a hostgator support to whitelist me against Mod_Security but they answered me this: " Your account is not hitting and Mod_Sec rules ". So I dont know what to do...

Thanks in advanced
can anyone help me?

What does that mean? If this is the exact hostinger's reply, it doesn't make any sense..

Anyways, you can disable mod_security yourself in the .htaccess file (without extension, dot at the beginning) which you need to place in your forum's root. Add this inside of it:
<IfModule mod_security.c>
  SecFilterEngine Off
  SecFilterScanPOST Off
Thank you its working, and yes it was their answer.
