Introduction to Using CLI with Imunify360

Requirements Before Starting

Before initiating the license activation or update process, make sure you have:

  • Root access on your Linux server.
  • Imunify360 installed on your server. Installation guides can be found in Imunify360’s official documentation if needed.
  • An Imunify360 license key, which is issued upon purchasing or subscribing to the service.

Activating Imunify360 License via CLI

Follow these instructions to activate your Imunify360 license using the CLI:

  • Access Your Server: Use a terminal application or an SSH client to log into your server as the root user.
  • Run the Activation Command: To activate your license, input the following command:
imunify360-agent register YOUR_LICENSE_KEY

Substitute YOUR_LICENSE_KEY with the actual license key you received from Imunify360.

  • Confirm Activation: To ensure the activation was successful, you can check Imunify360’s status by executing:
imunify360-agent status

This command will display the current operational status of Imunify360, including the license activation status.

imunify360-agent reread

This action instructs Imunify360 to re-verify its license status with the server and apply any subscription changes.
