How to stop DrWeb notification emails – Plesk 11

Wed, Feb 6, 2013


Its nice to have Plesk 11 all these features and finally the new phpMyAdmin (although not the latest).

But since i have moved to the new Plesk i had annoying emails every hour. None of the solutions i looked around was stoping the emails, but i got lucky at some point. Here are all the actions you can do and hopefully will solve your problem too.

you need SSH access to your plesk panel to do this

login with your account with SSH or with su as root.

Use your favourite editor (i use VI) and go to
vi /etc/drweb/drweb32.ini

look for
and change it to

Also you can edit the

vi /etc/drweb/drweb_handler.conf

where you can look for the Notification section and change anything that you dont want to be notified about by simply putting no instead of yes

After any changes you need to stop and start the drWeb Service.

you can do that by

/etc/init.d/drwebd start
/etc/init.d/drwebd stop
