    I just installed WHM on CentOS server and iptable rules block important access by default, for example I have installed litespeed webserver and I cannot access litespeed configuration admin area (i.e. IP:7080). Users cannot ftp their accounts either. If I disable iptables with 'service iptables stop' everything is available, as soon as I started access is blocked.

    I need urgent help !

    Hey,

    By default iptables block all the ports and you need to open the ports separately for each individual services.
    I will recommend you to install csf, so that you can manage the configuration from WHM, if you are not comfortable
    with the terminal.

    Hello,

    You can allow port 7080 in iptables using the following command

    Code:
    
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 7080-j ACCEPT
    
    service iptables save 
    
    server iptables restart

    @ crossing,

    Install CSF and allow list of ports you want.

    I am happy to see the suggestion of CSF was helpful. Thank you for updating us with the outcome.
