Linux servers may benefit from CSF’s Login/Intrusion Detection and Security features, as well as its Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall. Protecting your server from brute force assaults and enhancing security are the primary goals of this program.
WHM users can use this software as a free WHM plugin. In order to successfully install CSF, follow these instructions:
1. Log into your server as root, using SSH.
2. Now, follow these steps to install the CSF firewall.
# cd /usr/local/src
3. Download the tar file of the CSF firewall.
# wget https://download.configserver.com/csf.tgz
4. Now extract the tar file
# tar -xzf csf.tgz
5. Now go to the CSF directory.
# cd csf
6. Now run the script.
# sh install.sh
Now you can find the Config Security Firewall ( CSF ) option in the ‘Plugins’ section on the whm panel. From here, you can manage the CSF firewall.
