How to run a manual CXS scan across all cpanel users


It is a good idea to run CXS every week - just to make sure everything is protected on your server. 

The following command will run a scan on every user account on the server.


/usr/sbin/cxs --report /root/scan.log  --allusers --baction high --bayes --breport medium --clamdsock /tmp/clamd --defapache nobody --doptions Mv --exploitscan --fallback --filemax 10000 --html --mail --options mMOLfSGchexdnwZRD --qoptions MBfSGchxve --sizemax 500000 --ssl --summary --sversionscan --timemax 30 --virusscan --voptions mfuhexT 


NB: Please replace the with your actual email address.


To use this command:

1) Open an SSH/putty session to your server

2) Login as root

3) type in and hit enter: freshclam

4) type in: screen -S Scan

5) copy and paste (right mouse in putty) the above command (but with your email address)

6) Hit enter.
