Hosting Panels Specific Settings

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This section includes specific settings for each hosting panel that Imunify360 supports. It is important to follow these instructions to setup Imunify360 plugin properly.


Note. mod_security, the important software for Imunify360, is not installed automatically during Imunify360 installation process. Without mod_security, Imunify360 will lack the following features:


Web application firewall.

Malware scanning of files uploaded using web.


Mod_security installation process is specific for different panels.


Find the official cPanel documentation on the link:


Find the official Plesk documentation on the link:


Important! If mod_security is installed after Imunify360, it is important to execute the following command to add mod_security ruleset to Imunify360:


For cPanel/Plesk:


imunify360-agent install-vendors


If mod_security is installed before Imunify360, the rules will be installed automatically.


Note. If Imunify360 installer detects any existing ruleset, it installs only minimal set of its rules. So, you need to disable all third-party rulesets prior to Imunify360 installation to get the full ruleset installed automatically.




It is possible to enable Service Status checker for Imunify360. Perform the following steps:


1. Go to Service Configuration and choose Service Manager.


2. In Additional Services section tick imunify360-agent and imunify360-captcha checkboxes.


3. Click Save and wait until cPanel enables the Service Status checker for Imunify360.




If succeeded, the status of Imunify360 service will be displayed at Service Status section of Server Status.




ModSecurity Settings


Recommended mod_security settings are:

Audit Log Level - Only log noteworthy transactions.

Connections Engine - Do not process the rules.

Rules Engine - Process the rules.






It is not recommended to use firewalld and Plesk Firewall simultaneously, because Plesk does not fully support such configuration. We recommend to disable firewalld by running the command on the server:


systemctl disable firewalld


Read more about the problem at Plesk Help Center in this thread.


ModSecurity Configuration


Web application firewall mode - On






During installation on DirectAdmin, Imunify360 will try to install mod_security automatically using custombuild 2.0.


Note that automatic installation of Imunify360 ruleset is only supported with custombuild 2.0.
