This is documentation for an outdated product. See the current documentation


ImunifyAV antivirus is a website antivirus that scans user websites for detecting malware codes and monitoring the domain blacklists of Google, Yandex, and other resources. The antivirus detects and deletes malware scripts such as web-shells, backdoors, phishing pages, trojans, etc.

ImunifyAV Antivirus is available in ISPmanager  Lite starting from version 5.182 instead of Revisium Antivirus  that was used in earlier versions of the control panel.

  8. Enable the option Auto update antivirus databases to keep the  ImunifyAV bases up to date.
  9. Automatic scanning parameters:
    1. Scheduled scanning —  set the interval of automatic website scanning. Possible values: "Never", "Once a month", "Daily", "Once a week", "Once a month".

Management tools

Navigate to Tools→ ImunifyAV (ex. Revisium).

Scanning modes

There are two scanning modes:

  • By users — the system will check domain directories for viruses and domain reputation for blacklist statuses.
  • By domains — the system will check user directories including all domains. Domain reputation is not checked.

To change the mode click By user or By domains. 


To start the scanning process, click the following buttons:

  • Scan all — scan all domains/users;
  • Scan — scan the selected domain/user only. 

If the system detects malware objects, the infected domain/user will be marked as "infected". You will see the following buttons on the toolbar:

  • Report — view the detailed report to see detected files;
  • Cleanup— cure the files according to the scanning settings.

Once completed, the status in the list of domains/users will change into "Cured". You will show the number of cured threads, date and time when the clean processes started. Clicking the "Undo" button will restore the files back. 

You can undo the operation only for all cured domains/users that have original copies. You cannot restore a single file.

Copies of the files before they were cured are stored in the temporary directory usr/local/mgr5/var/raisp_data/backups/.

ImunifyAV  logs are stored in /usr/local/mgr5/var/raisp_data/log. /usr/local/mgr5/var/raisp_data/log.
