So my host suspended my vps cause it detected it was sending spam. How can I clean the vps and stop sending spam? I don’t see my theme files being modified. I don’t even know how they even get access to the mail server when I don’t use any mail tools
If your provider unsuspended you:
- Change your SSH password
- Disable SSH password, use private key instead
- Remove postfix or exim4 from your vps
- Make sure no any program listen on port 25 by typing sudo netstat --tupln
or if you’re paranoid, better reinstall your OS and rebuild EasyEngine from the beginning
Does easyengine install postfix or exim4 on default? if I removed both of those will wordpress still able to send emails?
