    Once you install CSF, you will find it listed under WHM -> Plugins -> ConfigServer Security&Firewall

    You will be able to manage it from there.

    You can run the command through SSH. If you have an root access to your server then you can get through SSH and run the wget command.

    You will need to install putty (command line) and need to configure on your machine and through putty you can get the SSH access.

    Solution

    To install firewall on your server basically 1st you need to logged into shell with the root login details....once you logged into shell as root user then run the following command one by one..

    wget http://www.configserver.com/free/csf.tgz
    tar -xzf csf.tgz
    cd csf
    sh install.sh

    once you installed csf you can configure it as per your requirement from your WHM >> Plugins >> ConfigServer Security&Firewall


    Note : For shell access you need to install putty software on your local machine
