  • Weekly:- This will send weekly (Monday) alerts to the users after fetching version info from the installed CMS

Branding/Customising email templates

Administrators can customize/brand the emails that an end-user will receive to match their brand by editing the template file /opt/cpguard/app/resources/email_templates/cms_version.html . You may modify/replace the template as you wish leaving the placeholders/variables like {{{PRIMARY_DOMAIN}}} in the places where content is to be substituted by our script

Available placeholders

{{{PRIMARY_DOMAIN}}}       Primary domain of the account
{{{APP_URL}}}                        URL to end-user panel
{{{CMSVERSIONROWS}}}     CMS version details
{{{CHECK_TIME}}}                 Date and time
{{{YEAR}}}                              Current year


Additionally, you may modify the subject line and from address of the email by adding the following HTML comment section to the top of the template file

subject = Vulnerable CMS versions on your hosting account
from_address = [email protected]

Note: specifying an improper from_address may cause mail to be sent to spam on the receiver email program
