CSF Installation

Install

rm -fv csf.tgz
wget http://www.configserver.com/free/csf.tgz
tar -xzf csf.tgz
cd csf
sh install.sh


If you would like to disable APF+BFD (which you will need to do if you have
them installed otherwise they will conflict horribly):

sh disable_apf_bfd.sh

That’s it. You can then configure csf and lfd in WHM, or edit the files
directly in /etc/csf/*

CSF is pre configured to work on a cPanel server with all the standard cPanel
ports open. It also auto-configures your SSH port if it’s non-standard on
installation.

You should ensure that kernel logging daemon (klogd) is enabled. Typically, VPS
servers have this disabled and you should check /etc/init.d/syslog and make
sure that any klogd lines are not commented out. If you change the file,
remember to restart syslog.

Uninstallation

Removing csf and lfd is even more simple:

cd /etc/csf
sh uninstall.sh
