Installing Firewall using csf(ConfigServer Security & Firewall) on DirectAdmin
CSF is SPI iptables firewall that is comprehensive, straight-forward, easy and flexible to configure
It is very easy to install in DirectAdmin and very easy to setup your iptables without complicated settings.
Here is the command that I use while installing csf in the shell
rm -fv csf.tgz wget http://www.configserver.com/free/csf.tgz tar -xzf csf.tgz cd csf sh install.sh
If you see this error, you can install the perl-libwww-perl to continue
Configuring for OS Checking for perl modulesfailed You need to install the LWP perl module (libwww-perl) and then install csf yum install perl perl-libwww-perl
Test and make sure all without error.
Remove the old one in iptables to prevent mess up.
Open DirectAdmin Directly
After this, you can login to your DirectAdmin directly.
You can see the ConfigServer Firewall&Security at the bottom of your main Admin page, Extra Features there.
It will help you generate the iptables, so you no need to worry and think about it.
