Enable LFD emails in CSF/LDF cPanel plugin? (POP3 error?)




Posted by kpmedia, 10-29-2013, 08:34 PM
I have CSF/LFD installed on some new cPanel servers, and I'm getting everything tweaked. But the issue I'm running into is the LFD log emails are not being sent. I believe those should be on by default. I checked the logs manually (/var/log/lfd.log) and it has a constant POP3 failure from the server itself. Not sure if this is related, but it likely is. Of course, I'll keep looking, and eventually I'd probably figure it out on my own. But maybe somebody here has already seen this behavior before, and can me a tip in the right direction?

Have you set LF_ALERT_TO? This should be set to the email address to send alerts to.

Strange that it's POP3. Maybe failing to validate the sender due to strict receiving rules? I also believe LFD emails are on by default, even if just to 'root'. Also is the TO email okay? (other things been recieved?) If POP3 is down altogether, or just for the receiving account that'll explain it.

This is apparently two separate issues. Same LFD issue on both servers, but only 1 had POP3 errors. So I looked at the other one first; the easy one with 1 error. I forgot to set LF_ALERT_TO -- so that was user error. I found that one maybe 5 minutes after making this post. I always forget the LFD options are in the "CSF" configuration. But it's not just CSF in the config GUI. However, my main server does NOT have anything set for LF_ALERT_TO, and all mail comes from root@hostname. I did that so long ago (~1 year), that I just do not remember why it works. It sends email somehow, but I'm not sure where. The POP3 issue appears to be separate. 1.2.3.4 is my IP. So it's a local failure.

Please check in WHM ->Service Configuration ->Service Manager -> then scroll down and look under the "Monitor" column. Try checking "lfd" under additional services. Hope this helps!

LFD is already monitored.
