Hello.

Is it normal for the free version of imunify360 to produce cron logs showing activity every single minute as well as every 5 minutes as such:

Code:

Hello. I did submit a request and resolution on my end was to simply purge imunify360 from the server which also deleted the errant cron jobs associated with it. The errant cron job was listed in /etc/cron.d/ This was acceptable as I wasn't using the professional version and only getting full scans once a month. So problem solved and I would like to add that the technician was very thorough, quick and professional.

Thanks again Cpanel!
