How do I run nightly scans of all my websites?

Normally running nightly scans should not be necessary after doing your first full scan because all changed files in your vhosts tree are scanned automatically when the anti-malware monitor is enabled. If you would like to switch to nightly scans instead you should disable the anti-malware monitoring. When the anti-malware monitoring is disabled Sentinel will run the nightly cron /etc/cron.daily/maldet which will scan the entire vhosts tree nightly.

To disable the anti-malware monitoring and switch to nightly scans:

systemctl disable maldet
systemctl stop maldet

After the anti-malware monitoring is disabled you will see it marked as "Inactive" in the Sentinel dashboard:

Anti-malware monitoring disabled

To re-enable the anti-malware monitoring and switch back to real-time monitoring:

systemctl enable maldet
systemctl start maldet

After the anti-malware monitoring is enabled you will see it marked as "Active" in the Sentinel dashboard:

Anti-malware monitoring enabled
