After reinstalling csf , becourse of problems with lfd not starting. i could not acces the csf interface anymore.
deleting it an installing following does not work !!! :mad:

after hours looking into it and giving it up.
i could not even find a solution on the internet, even several people where having the same problem.

I found a solution after a few weeks of rest. :cool:

the problem is that the install notes is only for a simple install without any controll panels, so you have to adjust it to work properly.

First of all make sure all the previous installs are gone.
cd /etc/csf
and delete the csf dir in /usr/local directory.
and the csf directory in the /usr/local/directadmin/plugins directory.

Now al the csf files previously installed should be gone.

installing csf the correct way
cd /usr/local/directadmin/plugins
tar -xzf csf.tgz
cd csf
thats it.

Now you have your csf+lfd installed and have your interface back throug directadmin.
Dont forget to adjust your configuration and start the firewall.

if you want the adjust the csf.conf file directly, you have to adjust the one located at /etc/csf

Sorry for any spelling or incorrect language, i'm not english... :rolleyes:
