Linux : Error starting CSF /sbin/ifconfig (ifconfig binary location) -v does not exist!

Having such issue starting/stopping CSF on RHEL/CentOS 7?

# csf -x

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

You have an unresolved error when starting csf:
Error: /sbin/ifconfig (ifconfig binary location) -v does not exist!, at line 2510 in /usr/sbin/csf
You need to restart csf successfully to remove this warning, or delete /etc/csf/csf.error

To resolve this matter, just install the missing packages with Yum as followed :

Then delete CSF error file :
