    Wondering if it's a good idea every now and then to delete all Firewall Deny IP's from CSF and uninstall and reinstall mod_security to ensure I'm not blocking any legitimate customers?


    Thanks very much

    I think CSF deletes them automatically as more are added.
    I've cleared it a few times when someone is having issues and is not sure of their IP. Rather than me researching logs to see which is theirs, I just wipe out all IPs.

    Of course, within an hour I see 'fluffy' trying to ssh in again. :)

    Go on, have a guess
    If you're worried about blocking customers, using temporary blocks instead of permanent ones in csf might be a better idea for things like mod_security.
