Easy way to Enable/Disable CSF installed on the server via command line

It is a simple topic, but it is a very frequently using command line option for enabling/disabling CSF. We have already discussed almost more than five topics based on the CSF. Here I am writing a quick command-line option to enable/disable CSF from the command-line.

How to enable CSF from command line?
You can use the switch ‘e‘ along with the command CSF to enable it from command line.


csf -e

How to disable CSF from command line?
Use the switch ‘x‘ to disable CSF.


csf -x

To restart the CSF, you can use the ‘r’ switch.


csf -r

That’s it.

    Thanks for this post. This saved me a lot of time… I had been trying with “service csf” and it wasn’t working!
