    Hello!

    The Installation Guide says to deactivate the firewall before installation of cpanel, however it doesn't specify if the firewall should or shouldn't be reactivated afterwards - or if cpanel takes care of this by itself.

    I assume it would be best to just deactivate it during the update/installation process - but I'm really not sure.

    Any thoughts? :)

    Hello :)

    You can start "iptables" again after the installation completes, however ideally you should use a firewall management utility such as CSF if you prefer to use a firewall and are not experienced with using custom iptables firewall rules.

    Thank you.
