My machine says this.

Code:
Unable to start cxs Watch daemon: /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches is set too low [currently:8192]. You need to have your VPS provider increase this value."
My host provider says this.

This error is the cause of the failure. We cannot change that parameter on the VPS platform.
With cxswatch not working, does that make CSF useless, or disabled?

Thank you.
