While I'm waiting for my hosting archive to upload to the new host (it's going to take all day… It's at 29% and has been running for over 2.5 hours.) I figured I'd write about how much I'm appreciating the extra controls. I'm back home using WHM. (My other VPS is ServerCP, and I'm just not as comfortable using that interface.)
Now, though – I installed CSF & LFD (Firewall and notification system) which seem to be very proactive with notifications and keeping me aware of processes that may be going on with my account. Thanks very much tofor mentioning this wonderful security add on. I love that it sends notifications of excessive usage (even if it is of my own excessive usage – uploading this archive set it off.)
I also added ClamX virus scanner, but I'm not sure if I like it as much as I thought I would. I thought I'd be able to scan for viruses at the top level (WHM) but I can only see cPanel access to scanning. Hmm.. I can't expect my clients to understand and be proactive about scanning for viruses, and I definitely don't want to have to sign into each cPanel account. I don't see where I can choose to have the definitions automatically update every day or whatever period of time. Hmm.. More to learn.
CSF/LFD has an add on – ConfigServer eXploit Scanner (cxs) – $50 (one-time fee) which I think I may get. Still need to read more about it, but it sounds like it would be active in scanning for virus upon file upload. Great! For the bored or curious, here's a link. (below)
Holy cow, I've typed a lot. Anyway, I cannot effectively do anything else on my machine until this archive uploads. Perhaps it's time for me to go do some more weeding outdoors Happy Saturday!
