Would you please give me some more information on what exactly logs to give you and how to get them? What do you mean by starting it manually?

I checked the logs actually, everything seems fine, it's just that LFD/CSF suddenly stops working and i can't even find the reason for that..

you need to check the correct log file for the service you are testing.
each service has a startup command defined in the systemd so by checking lfd service file you can find that line and try it manually from ssh

but you will probably need to check it with some experienced sysadmin or cwp support if you don't know how to manually configure/reinstall CSF and set correct log paths.

Well, I would really need some help with re-installing or fixing CSF/LFD firewall as I don't have the knowledge to make correct configurations after reinstalling it to be able to work with CWP.

I had problems with upgraded csf yesterday, in temp bans.

What output you have for the following command?:
Code: [Select]
csf -r
If you have problems too with temp bans, check your file: /var/lib/csf/csf.tempban

The format of this file must be:
$time|$ip|$port|$inout|$timeout|$message

If you see something strange there, correct it, and restart your firewall.
Code: [Select]
csf -r

I have an issue with the CSF/LFD not starting at all..

However, I have installed a whole new server and the CSF there is running well, but it is not banning anything. The file /var/lib/csf/csf.tempban is empty

The file csf.tempban is just for temp bans.
Did you try to temp block any address, or permanent block?

Nevermind, I misunderstood this issue. However, I really need some help with re-installing CSF/LFD on my old server.
