  • CloudLinux 7.x, 8.x 64 bit
  • AlmaLinux 8.x 64 bit
  • Ubuntu 20.x 64 bit

  • DirectAdmin ( 1.643 or later )
  • cPMalScan will also work on servers with no control panel. But there will be no user interface. You will have to manage everyting from shell.

PHP 7.4 or later

PHP 7.4 or later is need for the admin user interface to work. Latest version of cpanel comes default with php 7.4.

👁 Kernel Inotify Support

Kernel Inotify support is needed for files monitoring to work. It's available by default in Linux Kernel 2.6.13 and later.

The OpenVZ/Virtuozzo VPS does not allow the changing of kernel parameters. So your VPS provider will have to increase /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches if more inotify resources are required.

🔥 Apache ModSecurity

Apache with ModSecurity is required for HTTP upload scanning and Web Application Firewall. It may not work properly with alternative web server like Nginx, Litespeed etc.
