Installation Instructions

Install Sentinel Anti-malware

  1. Login to the Plesk and go to Extensions then search for Sentinel. Then press the Get it Free button.
  2. Click the newly installed Sentinel Anti-malware custom button on the left hand side of the navigation.
  3. You will be prompted to enter in your license key and start the setup wizard. You must go though the entire wizard in order to disable it. When running the configuration wizard for the first time it is important to apply the recommended settings for each page to apply the Plesk optimized settings for that section. You can view the installation progress using the command: tail -f /var/log/plesk/panel.log

Installation using the command line interface

• You must be root in order to run the command line installer.
• The license will be bound to the first public IP address on the servers network card. This IP address should resolve to the servers fully qualified domain name.
• The installer must pass all validation tests (memory tests, repository tests, etc) otherwise the installer will exit and not run.

First install the extension using the following command:

plesk bin extension --install sentinel

Run the Warden CLI for the setup wizard to active the extension license, run the application installer, and configure the application:

/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/modules/sentinel/minion --task=application:setup --license_key=XXX

The setup will return no output and an exit code of 0 if successful. The install log is located at /var/log/plesk/panel.log
