Re: CSF/LFD email without mail server, using 3rd party SMTP how?

Hi,

Just a follow up on this, I just installed sSMTP on a Ubunta 16.04 LTS VPS for CSF emails and had issues, with connecting to smtp.gmail.com

The fix is to set the hostname as localhost instead of the email address, like:

Code: Select all

hostname=localhost

Can I run CSF security report through SSH?

Hi,

Is it possible to run CSF security report in SSH and either output it or send it to a file, as I have no control panel?

Thanks,

CSF/LFD email without mail server, using 3rd party SMTP how?

Hi,

I have just install CSF on Ubuntu, on a Digital Ocean droplet.
I don't have an email server installed, so I would like to send CSF/LFD emails via a 3rd party SMTP server.

How would I do this, without installing a mail server?
I have looked at the csf.conf and couldn't see away.

Thanks,
Gaz
