I. The cause of the warning Security Error No valid session key on CSF DirectAdmin
The causes of this warning are many, but you can briefly understand it like this: Initially, you log in to DirectAdmin on network A, then you do not log out but switch to network B, although you are still on the DirectAdmin admin page, when you enter CSF, you will receive a message similar to the following image. Or, your network is a dynamic IP and your network IP has just been changed by the carrier, resulting in the same warning.
While your login session is still present, CSF checks that your IP Wan has changed and will no longer give you access to the CSF console. This prevents the hacker from taking over the CSF administration when the connection comes from a different IP address.
