In this tutorial we will show you how to set up the Sucuri Server Side Scanner. There are two ways to enable this scanner. We will show you how to enable with FTP settings, and also manually via cPanel.

"This scan is an extension to our remote malware/blacklist scan and it runs once a day. It verifies every single file on your site, looking for backdoors, phishing and any other security issue that our remote scanner could miss. It also tracks file changes, giving you an audit trail of any change that happens on your files.You can enable Server Side Scanning for no extra cost. It is not required, but we recommend all our users to enable it whenever possible (learn more)."
