Installing and Configuring CSF Firewall

This article demonstrates how to install and configure the CSF (configserver) firewall. CSF can be used on a wide range of Linux systems, including those running cPanel.

rm -fv csf.tgz
tar zxf csf.tgz
cd csf

If you have APF + BFD you will need to disable it, you can use the following to do so:


To configure CSF modify the config files in /etc/csf/ - or if you are running WHM you can modify the CSF settings in there. By default CSF opens the standard cPanel ports.


Removing csf and lfd is very simple task

you have to login to your server with root user and execute following commands

cd /etc/csf
