How to install CSF on Hestia CP


CSF is a firewall bundle. An alternative to firewallD & Fail2ban (part of stock Hestia CP install).

For those who prefer the former above the latter – here is a simple tutorial how to enable the CSF & Hestia CP integration.


Disabled firewallD via Hestia CP

CSF Install steps:

# cd /usr/src
# rm -fv csf.tgz
# wget 
# tar -xzf csf.tgz
cd csf

CSF to Hestia CP integration sed snippet:

find . -type f -exec sed -i 's/VESTA/HESTIA/g' {} + && \
find . -type f -exec sed -i 's/Vesta/Hestia/g' {} + && \
find . -type f -exec sed -i 's/vesta/hestia/g' {} + && \
rename 's/VESTA/HESTIA/' * && \
rename 's/vesta/hestia/' *

CSF Autoupdates are working flawlessly.
