Background Process Killer

You can set WebHost Manager to automatically detect and kill any one of the following processes (if a process is killed, you will be emailed with information about that process):

  • BitchX
  • bnc
  • eggdrop
  • generic-sniffers
  • guardservices
  • ircd
  • psyBNC
  • ptlink
  • services

It is recommended that you do not allow any of these processes to run on your servers. You can also add trusted users who will not have these processes killed.

  1. To access the System Health Menu, click on System Health, on the main screen of your WebHost Manager interface.
  2. Click on Background Process Killer.
  3. Click on the checkboxes next to the processes that you want to automatically kill. It is recommended that you do not allow any of these processes to run on your servers.
  4. Enter the name of any trusted users in the available field, if required. Enter one user per line. All users with a uid of less than 99 (including root, mysql, named, and cpanel) are automatically trusted.
  5. Click on Save.
