    Hello :)

    Your access level is listed as "Website Owner". Do you have root access to this server? If not, you will not be able to install a firewall.

    Thank you.

    Yes, I have root access to the sever. The hosting provider suggest me to install firewall and antivirus.

    Thank you!

    ConfigServer Firewall is the most popular firewall management utility used by cPanel administrators. You can find it at:

    ConfigServer Security & Firewall

    As far as AntiVirus, you could use ClamAV:

    "WHM Home » cPanel » Manage Plugins"

    Thank you.

    Thank your reply.
    I had installed the ClamAV and the Firewall, but where can I install the Webmin Module? in Cpanel or WHM?

    http://configserver.com/free/csf/install.txt

    Webmin Module Installation/Upgrade
    ==================================

    To install or upgrade the csf webmin module:

    Install csf as above <-----finished
    Install the csf webmin module in:
    Webmin > Webmin Configuration > Webmin Modules >
    From local file > /usr/local/csf/csfwebmin.tgz > Install Module

    where can in find the Webmin?

    Thanks!

    Please edit your forum profile, and change your access level to "Root Administrator." You have "Website Owner" selected, and because of that, you will receive replies that assume that you do not have root access to the server.

    The access level setting in your profile helps forum users give you replies that are appropriate for your level of access to the server.

    Webmin is a completely separate control panel that is not related at all to cPanel. You should not install Webmin on a cPanel server.

    The CSF documentation you quoted is for Webmin, not cPanel. Disregard the instructions to install the Webmin module, because Webmin has nothing to do with cPanel and Webmin is not installed by default on a cPanel server.

    The documentation you are asking about refers to a module for Webmin, not a module named Webmin. Basically, it is instructions for installing CSF on a completely different control panel that is not related to cPanel at all.

    Follow the instructions that are specific for cPanel. If you have more questions about installing CSF, you really need to talk to its developer directly. CSF is not a cPanel product, so we do not provide support for it. CSF support contact information is available here:
