How do I create a scheduled cxs scan or cron job?

  • Tuesday 13th September 2016 10:41

When we do an install we create daily and weekly scans in the file /etc/cron.d/cxs-cron. If we did not do the install for you, you can either create this file and add your own cron job with your desired cxs command to it, or use the WHM cxs UI.

If you wish to configure it via the WHM cxs UI you need to first unrestrict the UI by logging into ssh and removing the file /etc/cxs/cxs.restricted. Then to create a cron job click on "Generate Commands", configure the options you want, and then click "Create cron job" at the bottom of the page. It will create the cron job in the file /etc/cron.d/cxs-cron. On the next screen, select the frequency and timing of the cron job and click "Submit Cron Job". From then on you can edit your scheduled scan via the button "Edit Cron Jobs" in the WHM cxs UI.
