ConfigServer - CSF change to configuration (Country Code lookups (CC_LOOKUPS))


Just a head's up that if you are running ConfigServer Firewall that you may see errors in your logs showing the following:

Jan 7 15:27:00 host lfd[17808]: CC Error: Country Code Filters setting MM_LICENSE_KEY must be set in /etc/csf/csf.conf to continue using the MaxMind databases

You will need to add a Maxmind key if you need to use the Country code lookups. Please read the following post to add it to your CSF configuration file:
Thanks Jean, I'd been seeing this error but hadn't had a chance to look into it yet.
ConfigServer released CSF v14.00 today, which can make use of alternate GeoIP databases:
# 2. DB-IP,,
# Advantages: The databases form CC blocking are better optimised
# and so are quicker to process and create fewer iptables entries. All of these
# databases are free to download without requiring login or key
# Disadvantages: Multiple sources mean that any one of the three could
# interrupt the provision of these features. It may also mean that there are
# inconsistences between them

# Set the following to your preferred source:
# "1" - MaxMind
# "2" - db-ip, ipverse, iptoasn
# The default is "2" on new installations of csf, or set to "1" to use the
# MaxMind databases after obtaining a license key
CC_SRC = "1"
