Written by: Will Kruss on 03 July 2019 12:14 PM
VPSBlocks has introduced a new feature to monitor and alert clients when their wordpress sites have known vulnerabilities.
Portal Login Explained
If you login to the portal website using your email address and password you can administer all your VPSs, change account details, place new orders etc.
If you login to the portal website using your VPS username and password you will only have access to manage a single VPS, no mention of VPSBlocks is made, and no ability to modify your account or order services. You will not have access to setup Wordpress monitors unless you login using your email address.
How to start/stop your VPS
1. Go to https://portal.controlmyvps.com.au
2. Login using your email address and password
3. Click on 'Security' on the left hand panel
4. Click on the plus next to 'Add a New Website Vulnerability Monitor'
5. Enter the URL for your wordpress website and hit 'OK'
The scan will enter a pending state, you can set the email notification address to anything like and hit the 'Save' icon. Once the scan is complete you will be notified via email if there are vulnerabilities, to refresh the page to get the report links and see the current status of all sites just click the 'Security' tab on the left hand panel again.
