I ran into some errors today when installing CSF on an Ubuntu 18.04 VPS system.
Code: Select all
*WARNING* TESTING mode is enabled - do not forget to disable it in the configuration
'lfd.service' -> '/usr/lib/systemd/system/lfd.service'
'csf.service' -> '/usr/lib/systemd/system/csf.service'
chcon: invalid context: ‘system_u:object_r:systemd_unit_file_t:s0’: No such file or directory
chcon: invalid context: ‘system_u:object_r:systemd_unit_file_t:s0’: No such file or directory
Unit /etc/systemd/system/firewalld.service is masked, ignoring.
You see the 2 "chcon invalid context" lines.
I did not see them before on other 18.04 VPS systems as far as I remember.

The check says CSF should work oke though.
Code: Select all
/usr/src/csf# perl /usr/local/csf/bin/
Testing ip_tables/iptable_filter...OK
Testing ipt_LOG...OK
Testing ipt_multiport/xt_multiport...OK
Testing ipt_REJECT...OK
Testing ipt_state/xt_state...OK
Testing ipt_limit/xt_limit...OK
Testing ipt_recent...OK
Testing xt_connlimit...OK
Testing ipt_owner/xt_owner...OK
Testing iptable_nat/ipt_REDIRECT...OK
Testing iptable_nat/ipt_DNAT...OK
Is this a bug or did I forget to install something? Can this safely be ignored?
Happens both on or script.

This could happen if SELinux is disabled on the server. If so, then there shouldn't be any issues.
