Well now I've locked myself out of the box with APF! I have kinda disabled all ports that's accesable like this: deny_hosts.rules #ftp tcp:in:d=21:s=0/0 #ssh tcp:in:d=22:s=0/0 #smtp #tcp:in:d=25:s=0/0 ....... out:d=21:d=0/0 out:d=22:d=0/0 ...... But I have WHM and CPANEL acces, there I can upload files and modify website files or change configuration of the webserver. I need to find out how to stop APF from inside the WHM or cpanel. Is this possible? I have looked for a few hours now it's not possible I think. Now I try to upload an php or perl code and accesing the website to apf-f and remove the cronjob. But does it work? <? system("apf -f"); exec('apf -f'); ?> This is not working? Somebody here got any tips or tricks? Thank allot for your time.
