Install Imunify360 cPanel
Installing Imunify360 is simple. The software works with control panels like cPanel, DirectAdmin, ISP Manager, and Plesk. But, you can also use it on systems without any control panel. So, to install enter the command below as the root user or a user with root privileges.
wget https://repo.imunify360.cloudlinux.com/defence360/imav-deploy.sh bash imav-deploy.sh
To install Imunify360 on a Plesk system go to the extension page or Security → ImunifyAV in your Plesk system.
By viewing infections from the control panel you can see the problem easily. Here’s an example of a wp-config.php file that has been modified. The code at the top should not be in this file. Imunify360 picked up on this. Without Imunify this infection would have gone unnoticed. It’s likely happened because the user is using insecure plugins, nulled software, or not updating their website regularly.
Having the software on hand is a great way to know when a site has a problem. This enables easy resolution of issues and often allows you to catch problems before they happen. Keep an eye on the control panel to keep your server secure and free of malware.
