Hello.

It seems like wp-toolkit which I'm presuming has something to do with WordPress, is running commands on the server despite my not having WordPress installed. In fact, how do I remove all vestiges of WordPress plugin and why does Cpanel insist on offering it to me?

Code:
Jun 13 05:11:16 xxxxxx sudo: wp-toolkit : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/wp-toolkit/scripts ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/bin/sh -c whmapi1 get_user
s_features_settings user-1=emailbucket feature-1=filemanager feature-2=backup feature-3=cron feature-4=phpmyadmin feature-5=mysql feature-6=multiphp feature
-7=subdomains feature-8=webprotect feature-9=sslinstall feature-10=wp-toolkit feature-11=wp-toolkit-deluxe --output=json
Jun 13 05:11:16 xxxxxx sudo: pam_unix(sudo:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
Jun 13 05:11:16 xxxxxx sudo: pam_unix(sudo:session): session closed for user root
Jun 13 05:11:16 xxxxxx sudo: wp-toolkit : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/wp-toolkit/scripts ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/bin/test -f /etc/logrotate
.d/wp-toolkit-action-logs

Hey hey! If you had WordPress Manager installed on the server in the past, the WordPress Toolkit packages were automatically downloaded and installed in a recent update. You can run this command to remove those:

Code:
yum remove wp-toolkit-cpanel
and that will fully remove the software.
