Imunify360 Can Now Be Installed Without A Web Control Panel
Previously, Imunify360 had to be installed through a particular control panel, such as cPanel (read more about cPanel security), DirectAdmin, or Plesk (read more about Plesk security). Now, with version 4.5, it can be installed directly on the server, independent of any panel, regardless of the administrative interface.
This new version of Imunify360 can be run on any CentOS 6/7, Ubuntu 16/18, RHEL 6/7, or Cloudlinux 6/7 server with Apache web server. It provides complete six-layer security for Linux VPS, dedicated, and shared servers--without requiring any web control panel.
Use and Integration
The Imunify360 stand-alone installation can be used:
- by VPS Owners as a stand-alone Linux web server security solution
The Imunify360 stand-alone installation has its own user interface and can be managed through the browser or through the command line, directly on the server.
- by Hosting Providers as part of your web control panel
The Imunify360 stand-alone installation can be integrated with any web control panel, with just a few integration scripts, such as getting a list of users and domains. The user interface can easily be embedded into the web control panel settings as well.
