    HI all.

    How is everybody juggling multiple Centmin Mod servers security? For example I have about 15 servers now and it's still growing, but it's an insane pain in the ass to try and whitelist an ip for all of them, or enable or disable security rules or firewall rules. Does anybody have any recommendations for how to do that? I tried out Trend Micro Deep security but wasn't a fan. I might give Sophos a try but it looks like they are hiding the pricing until I talk to sales which always rubs me the wrong way.
    I love, love, love, CSF and CXS but there is no global way to manage those, only on a per server basis.

    thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Some folks like using puppet, ansible, chef etc. I haven't used those. You can easily set up a private gitlab.com repository for free on their hosting service to house the /etc/csf/ directory files on each server and just symlink or git deploy them to all servers or setup a script to auto git pull from the private gitlab repo the latest files. Though on CSF auto update some of those files might get updated IIRC.

    If you're using a SSH client that supports it, you can also push a single command to multiple servers. It's what I do most often for my servers via my SecureCRT SSH client i.e. Centmin Mod Nginx upgrading etc. Basic example is how I installed Centmin Mod simultaneously on 2x servers one running CentOS 7 and other CentOS 6, via the single command issued in SecureCRT Install - How to install Centmin Mod Videos | Centmin Mod Community

    If you have a linux distro as OS, you can use clusterssh (not sure of there is a windows version of it).
