    What firewall is cPanel using? The installation guide had me turn off iptables on install. Does cPanel have its own firewall or do I need to re-enable iptables?


    Here is where it's turned off before installation: Step 5: Configure Your Operating System

    Hello :)

    You will need to enable your own custom IPTables firewall rules or use a third party firewall such as CSF or APF. You can find a list of ports that should be open at:

    Thank you.
