Re: LF_PERMBLOCK_ALERT set to 0

Same issue here - the LF_PERMBLOCK_ALERT=0 setting has no effect and the permanent block notification emails continue to be sent. Current version is 12.09.

For example, with Plesk and qmail it logs to syslog with the username "mhandlers-user". We have this configured in csf.syslogusers but it doesn't g...

Can't add root to mysyslog with csf.syslogusers

We have a CentOS 7 server where we are running CSF v10.04. On this server we have Qmail as the MTA (part of Plesk 12.5) and it logs to rsyslog via the 'root' user. I checked /etc/csf/csf.syslogusers and root is already included in the file by default. However, root does not get added to the mysyslog...
