Firewall problem
« on: March 14, 2020, 06:16:01 PM »
Every now and then websites can't connect to DB, and I can't even get CWP login screen. Bunch of lines with php and mysql errors pop up. When I manage to get inside CWP I find Firewall off, and can't turn it on.

Dashbord says that Firewall is disabled, but when I try to Enable Firewall, message says csd and lfd are not disabled!
What's going on here?

This is as useful as a chocolate teacup! Read the error messages and digest.

Not aimed specifically at you:
  • "My car is broken"
  • What appears to be wrong with it?
  • "I don't know, it's broken"

There has been a bug with the way CWP reports a disabled CSF, from the very first time I used this panel.
To add salt to the wound, they appeared to have removed the official CSF GUI from the menu - version 0.9.8.951 freshly installed today.
The latest release has a number of errors during installation too, so not properly tested/debugged.

If you've done a 'csf -e' and 'systemctl status lfd' shows running, then take those to be the correct answers, rather than the (bug ridden, typo driven) GUI.

Running a server/VPS means YOU take responsibility to learn how to do it properly. If you can't manage, buy shared hosting.

Commands work, but it happens often. It seems like if I don't get it resolved in a couple of days, mysql goes wild, and I have problem logging into CWP, while websites are down (WP: Error connecting to database).

Is there a way to prevent this?

Ok, here is the message. It showed up after logging into CWP, situation resolved itself and everything started working.
