Well I'm not going to go into full detail but basically aside from running rootkit checkers, antiviruses, etc.

From time to time i run:


Every once in awhile i also run:

Just to make sure my apache is patched and up to date.

Now in WHM i use the link to fix/rebuild mail boxes, in case any permissions got messed up. I also restart services services that have been running for along time, or that i notice are using more CPU then usual.

I know there's alot of /scripts for cpanel, but i'm not sure which ones to use at what time, besides the ones i posted above. I experimented with one, and it ended up untinstalling up2date, so i never tried any of the other ones lol. For example when would /scripts/exim be ran, and etc.

Post anything you check regularly, such as configurations, and any scripts you run to help keep your server running good. :)

Thank you in advance for your replies. :D
