CSF Error: *WARNING* Binary location for [HOST] [/usr/bin/host] in /etc/csf/csf.conf is either incorrect, is not installed or is not executable

During a CSF start or restart you may encounter this error. This is a result of /usr/bin/host being missing. Most of the time, the error message is also accompanied by *WARNING* Binary location for [CHATTR] [/usr/bin/chattr] in /etc/csf/csf.conf is either incorrect, is not installed or is not executable as well. To fix both these errors, just run the following command:

yum install bind-utils


Once bind-utils is installed, do not forget to restart csf with csf -r
