Installation Instructions

• Postfix needs to be installed before you begin the installation. If your server is currently running qmail then complete Switching from Qmail to Postfix
• If you are on a slow connection it might take few minutes to upload the Warden Anti-spam and Virus protection extension to your server.

Install Warden Anti-spam and Virus Protection

  1. Login to the Plesk and go to Extensions then search for Warden. Then press the install button.
  2. Click the newly installed Warden Anti-spam and Virus Protection custom button. Plesk users in the Service Provider view will see the button on the left hand side while users running in the Power User view will see the button on the right hand side under Additional Services. You will be prompted to enter in your license key and start the setup wizard.

You can view the installation progress using the command:

tail -f /var/log/plesk/panel.log

Run the Warden Setup Wizard

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.

Configure the Razor, Pyzor, and DCC SpamAssassin Firewall Ports

Make sure that you opened up the correct ports on the Plesk firewall. The network tests will not work if the ports are not properly opened.

  1. Razor requires that port 2703 TCP OUT be opened.
  2. Pyzor requires that port 24441 UDP IN / OUT be opened.
  3. DCC requires that port 6277 UDP OUT be opened.
