Installation Instructions

• You should not run any other iptables firewall configuration scripts as they will conflict and cause the CSF to not function properly.
• If you are on a slow connection it might take few minutes to upload the Juggernaut Firewall extension to your server.

Install Juggernaut Security and Firewall

  1. Login to the Plesk and go to Extensions then search for Juggernaut. Then press the install button.
  2. Click the newly installed Juggernaut Firewall custom button. Plesk users in the Service Provider view will see the button on the left hand side while users running in the Power User view will see the button on the right hand side under Additional Services. You will be prompted to enter in your license key and start the setup wizard.

You can view the installation progress using the command:

tail -f /var/log/plesk/panel.log

Run the Juggernaut Setup Wizard

When running the configuration wizard for the first time it is important to apply the recommended settings for each page to apply the Plesk optimized settings for that section. After installation the firewall and login failure daemon will be running in "testing" mode. After you are sure everything is configured correctly be sure to disable test mode by unchecking the "Testing" checkbox in Juggernaut Firewall -> Settings -> Initial Settings or by setting TESTING = "0" in /etc/csf/csf.conf. You will then be able to start the firewall and login failure daemon.

Configuration Tasks

The installer will automatically handle most configration tasks but its recommended that you familiarize yourself with the tasks that are performed by the installer:
