2) A WHM web interface through which the administrator can configure server-wide settings.

3) A command line tool through which the server administrator can manage MailScanner via command line.

Installation of Config Server MailScanner

1) The first step is to ensure that you don’t have ‘Clamavconnector’ installed on your server. If you already have it, remove it from WHM > Add-on Modules.

Once it has been confirmed, log in to your server via SSH as root user and download the package from their official website. You can use the following command to download the package and then extract it.

$ wget https://download.configserver.com/msinstall.tar.gz

$ tar -xzf msinstall.tar.gz

2) After completing the extraction, you need to navigate into the extracted directory and execute the installation script as shown below.

$ cd msinstall

$ sh install.sh

3) Once you have completed the installation, you need to uncheck “SpamAssassin Spam Filter” and “SpamAssassin Spam Box” in WHM Tweak settings. You should also uncheck the “spamd” boxes in WHM “Service Manager” section. Now you can manage the settings through the Config Server MailScanner plugin in both WHM and cPanel.
