Notes:

  • MySQL 8.0 is supported since MySQL Governor 1.2-37.
  • Do not upgrade to version 8.0 servers earlier than 5.7.
  • cPanel does not officially support MySQL 8.0, that is why we don’t recommend to use it on cPanel servers.
  • Use on your own risk for DirectAdmin and Plesk servers, because downgrade can corrupt your databases.

New ISPmanager Lite panel with ImunifyAV

Tue, 11/12/2018 - 12:16

For ISPmanager panel users, Revisium Antivirus changes its name to ImunifyAV, keeping its reputation as a popular and effective malware and virus scanner.

Today, ISPsystem release a new version of their ISPmanager Lite hosting panel. This version comes pre-installed with ImunifyAV, the new name for Revisium Antivirus. With it, you can scan an unlimited number of websites and users per server, do automatic malware cleanup and create schedules for scanning. You can also get email alerts about any website infections.

You can find ImunifyAV in the Tools menu:

 

If a user doesn't have an antivirus solution already configured, ImunifyAV becomes the default for that panel. Otherwise, a system administrator needs to install it from the Modules menu:

 

ImunifyAV+, the premium virus and malware scanner with one-click cleanup, is installed by default, and can be used free for up to 30 days. After that, the free ImunifyAV scanner becomes the default, and automated cleanup is disabled. You can continue with the full features of ImunifyAV+ by logging into your ISPsystem account and subscribing.

ImunifyAV is the latest breed of software designed for intelligent website security.

Learn more about ImunifyAV for ISPmanager here and read the documentation here.

(Website) size is not important

Fri, 07/12/2018 - 01:24

A common fallacy says that big, popular web sites are more likely to be the targets of hacking. After all, they have the biggest customer databases and the most amount of traffic. To a hacker, more traffic means more money. Right? 

Not quite. In Greg Zemskov’s latest blog post, he explains why small sites are just as attractive to hackers as big ones, what the hackers do with such sites, and what small site owners and administrators can do to avoid becoming victims. Read it now, here.

Push the boundaries: graylist IP-addresses behind Cloudflare

Wed, 05/12/2018 - 15:47

In a hosting provider’s world, there are a lot of risks: viruses, hackers and DDoS attacks, server overloads, etc. Hosting providers attempt to minimize these and other risks using a great many tools. A frequently-used service is Cloudflare. It provides content-delivery network services, DDoS mitigation, Internet security, and distributed domain-name server services. In the past, users have had issues synchronizing Cloudflare with Imunify360. This is no longer a problem because we have added Cloudflare support. You can now add IP addresses behind Cloudflare to the Imunify360 Gray List.

This is an experimental feature, and it is available in Imunify360 version 3.8 onwards. Please follow these instructions to upgrade. You can find all the technical details in our documentation.

Cloudflare support is disabled by default. To enable it, add the following section to the Imunify360 configuration file (/etc/sysconfig/imunify360/imunify360.config):

WEBSHIELD: known_proxies_support: true
