Security - can I install CSF without breaking our server?

+2 votes
We have been recommended using CSF - - to help secure our dedicated server. We would like to go ahead and install it, but first would like to find out:  1) if there are any existing firewalls installed on the server by default and 2) if there is anything we should be aware of before installing it. (would like to avoid any down-time).

It would be great to get some feedback on this from anyone who is running CSF on a afrihost server!

If your server is Self-Managed, you can install the software. There are existing firewall rules. If you would like changs to be made on the firewall you would need to send a request so that our server admin can make those changes for you. There won't be any downtime unless if it is caused by installation. We do not have any information on the softwares that are ran on any Self-Managed servers. We are not running CSF on all Shared Hosting and Managed Servers.
