    I need to edit some settings and also need to access the mysql settings. Currently i have just the WHM with root access...But im unsure where to go from here.. Ive tried a few forums and havent had anything really useful said which is frustrating. I dont wish to download a program to access this thing 1 being i wouldnt know how to load it to the server and 2nd i dont trust urls from forums =)

    Also :
    Possible Trojan - /usr/bin/xsltproc
    Possible Trojan - /usr/bin/cpan
    Possible Trojan - /usr/bin/prove
    Possible Trojan - /usr/bin/pstruct
    Possible Trojan - /usr/bin/splain

    Should i be concerned about this? or are they standard files it picks up most the time? If they do need to be deleted then how do i delete them? Sorry if my questions appear to be silly but im extremly new to Server side things and rather get a good handle on things before making changes

    Thanks for your help!:)

    There are many threads on this forum that I'm sure will be helpful. You really should take some time to do some searching and reading on this forum before trying to access those important files on your server. If you don't trust a link on these forums, post to that thread about the link and get a second opinion.

    The users here are sharp and on top of any bad links posted and bad links are removed.

    Here's a link you can most certainly trust.

    http://www.configserver.com/cp/cse.html

    Installation of that file manager is simple. But it will require logging in via SSH. Not sure how to do that? You might do a search on how to use SSH, on these forums and via google.

    Before you get into editing files, you might want to look into how to make sure your server is secure, or hire someone to do it for you.

    Another link you can surely trust.

    As for Possible Trojan, those two words can be searched here and will bring you the exact answers you seek.


    Best of luck with your new server.
