CSF on DirectAdmin

There was a time when I was about to select a firewall for a server which had DirectAdmin installed and I choosed CSF. CSF is one of the best firewall available for hosting servers.

  1. Installation of CSF in directAdmin is really easy, just download csf.
  2. Extract it
  3. and Install it

Just a 3 step installation.

  1. Login to server via ssh,
  2. Download csf using wget
  3. Run ./install.directadmin.sh
  4. and it will automatically install and will give you interface in DirectAdmin.

If you get perl related error then run uninstall script

  1. ./uninstall.directadmin.sh
  2. Install perl
  3. Then again try to install csf

Now configure ports to work csf better for Directadmin.
