    Due to some insane installation design BFD erases all file in the directory when installing - even ones backuped up renamed or anything else. So if you want your config file saved - you better not place it in that directory. I tarred mine up - and gone. I would guess the same holds true for APF.

    Remember - Cpanel knows nothing about either - so no backup there either.

    Shame on you Ryan - you should know better!

    Ryan is not responding to support tickets, live chat requests, nor were any of the forums up on his site, when I posted that. Now they seem to be up, and I will post there.

    Just poor design - nothing else.

    Never tried it with BFD, but in know with APF, the old directory is renamed to /etc/apf.XXXXXX where the X's refer, I believe to a date code for the time it was renamed.

    BFD might be the same.

    Apf does do it - but BFD does not. Just note, the import on Apf seems to import nothing, no email address and no ports, but with the old file is backed up it can be gotten. Problem is that it says it is importing.....

    Oh, well, nothing is perfect :rolleyes:
