To exclude files with media format and document extensions from scanning, enable the Do not scan media files option. To verify the selected files from the cache directories, enable the Optimize by speed option. It will reduce the scanning time significantly without compromising the quality of security threats identifying.
  2. Specify how many scanning threads are allowed at the same time. Threads run parallel to each other. Available values are: «1», «2», «4». Optimal value: 0.5*number of CPU cores. If your server has two or one processor core, the optimal value will be «1» thread.

  7. Enable the Auto-update antivirus databases option to keep ImunifyAV databases updated.
  8. Configuring automatic scanning:
    1. In the Scheduled Scan field, select the time interval after which the scan will be started. In the free version only two values are available: «Disabled» and «Once a month». In the paid version, you can choose from four options: «Disabled», «Daily», «Once a week», «Once a month».

Manual checking for viruses

ImunifyAV antivirus has two scanning modes: by users and by domains. The mode can be changed by pressing the corresponding button: By domains or By users.

Scanning by users:

This mode allows you to check the files of a specific user for viruses. All system files of this user and files of his websites will be checked. You can run a scan on all users at once or check them selectively. You can also interrupt the scan if necessary.

  1. To run a scan, go to the Antivirus section.
  2. Select the user you would like to scan for viruses and click on the Scan button. You can also scan all users for viruses with the Scan all button.

Scanning by domains:

This mode allows you to check the files of a specific website for viruses. Only the website files will be checked, the users' system files won't be affected. You can run a scan on all websites at once or check them selectively. You can also interrupt the scan if necessary.

  1. To run a scan, go to the Antivirus section.
  2. Select the website you would like to scan for viruses and click on the Scan button. You can also scan all websites for viruses with the Scan all button.

Curing the threats discovered

When scanning is completed, you will receive a report on the status of websites or users. If a user of a website is infected it will be marked as "infected" with the number of threats found in the status column. The premium version of the antivirus allows you to perform automatic treatment of detected threats. 

  1. Select an infected user or website
  2. Click on the Cleanup button to cure all threats automatically.

Sometimes not all threats can be cleaned up. In this case:

  1. Go to the list of discovered threats by clicking on the Report button.
  1. The status field will describe the reason why a file cannot be cured for every untreated threat.

Treatment cancellation: 

Before treating infected files, the antivirus creates a backup copy of them. So if your website stops working correctly after the treatment, these copies will allow you to undo the changes made and discover the causes of the problems you faced. The antivirus allows you to roll back the changes for the entire user/domain, or for separate files.

If you want to cancel the treatment of a user or a website:

  1. Select the website or user where you want to cancel the treatment.
  2. Click on the Restore button.

To cancel the treatment of a specific file:

  1. Select the website or user where you want to cancel the treatment.
  2. Click on the Report button.
  1. Select the file you want to restore to its original state and click on the Restore Files button.

Copies of files made before starting the treatment are stored in a temporary directory /usr/local/mgr5/var/raisp_data/backups/

Checking domains for sanctions

The antivirus can check domains' reputation automatically during the check if this option is enabled in the settings. Domains' reputation is checked in accordance with the «black lists» of Google, Yandex, Roskomnadzor, more than 50 other antivirus services, and phishing pages lists.
