    Hello,

    Cpanel automatically updated my CSF to v8.20 and now lfd constantly starts and stops itself. I can stop CSF but when I restart LFD continues to go back into a restart cycle. It is filling up lfd.log and I can't figure out what is causing it to continuously restart.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello :)

    cPanel will not automatically update your CSF plugin, however CSF does have an automatic update feature that you may have enabled:

    ConfigServer Security & Firewall

    You can search for AUTO_UPDATES on this page to see an example of the option.

    As far as the restart issue, keep in mind LFD/CSF is a third-party application. Are you restarting it via the "csf --lfd restart" command? What version of cPanel and what OS is installed on this system?

    Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the reply. I'm running centOS 6.7 and cPanel 54.0.21. It looks like CSF auto updated itself. I have used "csf --lfd restart" and "stop" but the daemon keeps requesting restarts indefinitely. The only command that stops it entirely is "csf -x" which completely disables CSF and LFD. I've force upgraded CSF again to see if that fixed it to no avail.

    A sample of my lfd.log is filled with lines like this:

    These go on indefinitely. This only started occuring once CSF was updated. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    That was indeed my problem, thank you for pointing me in that direction. For anyone else that finds this, a restart of CSF is required.
