    Cpanel and Virus Protection?

    Does anyone know of any virus protection software that will work with Cpanel. Actually it probably doesn't have to work with Cpanel.. but here is my situation..

    I have a lot of people uploading PDF’s and Word docs to our MySQL database, for other people to download. So far I have been downloading the files to my computer first and scanning them, then approving them. it would be nice if I can automate this check some how. I'm wondering of anyone out there does this sort of thing with the dedicated servers they run. Maybe just putting virus software on the server is good enough.

    Looking at the description, it says "Virus Protection for Email and Filemanager Uploads". It doesn't look like it would help me since the documents I'm worrying about get uploaded into MySQL.

    hmmm thats true - but really it would be wiser to upload the files to a folder instead of into mysql IMO

    Its a database of files, its a whole upload and ordering system. I'm not just uploading them to MySQL for storage.

    You could just modify your upload script to use an antivirus before moving
    the file to the destination.

    or perhaps you could setup your upload script to upload to a folder on your server then setup a cron job to virus scan that folder and move the 'safe' files to your database

    I think modifying the script would be the best bet. Now I just have to figure out how to do it
