CSF Error: *WARNING* URLGET set to use LWP but perl module is not installed, reverting to HTTP::Tiny

A common error clients come across after initially installing the Cnfig Server Security and Firewall, or CSF, is receiving the error message

*WARNING* URLGET set to use LWP but perl module is not installed, reverting to HTTP::Tiny

The problem is easy to fix. Just login as root via SSH and run the following command

CentOS/RedHat:

yum install perl-libwww-perl net-tools perl-LWP-Protocol-https

The error should now be gone and you can now enjoy the full functionality of CSF.
