Command Line Nightmares
loftus49 said 3 years, 1 month ago:
I’ve had a VDS for about 4 years now. But I’ve found that unless I have a fairly good understanding of Linux, I’m running into problems. Consequently, I’m crashing all the Linux info, books, FAQ’s, help articles, etc. I can.
But I’m not there yet.
I have a resident “spoofer” on my server whom I can’t find. This problem is compounded by the fact that GoDaddy won’t provide support of this nature to VDS customers and my prowess is not there yet.
For example, I haven’t been able to download and install rkhunter yet. I haven’t been able to restart Plesk from SSH yet. And I don’t know what to look for to find that conniving spoofer!
Has anyone else experienced anything like this … or am I the only dummy out here?

Unfortunately I am not entirely certain what specific issues you are having in regards to spoofer. May I please obtain a little more elaboration to your issue?
To restart PLESK:
Login as Root, type the following: service psa stopall && service psa start && service psa start
(first time doesn’t always start the root PLESK Service, just the dependant services)
To install RKHunter:
yum install rkhunter
