Malware detected on dbinstall

Post by staples99 » Mon Jul 13, 2020 8:55 am

Hi,

My hosting provider said that there was malware found on dbinstall, they said that I would either need a clean copy of the file or it can be deleted if it is not a vital file.

Would you consider this file as being vital? Could I remove it and hold a copy of it elsewhere?

Many thanks
Simon

You should really read some documentation, for example here. This file, by design, is used to create / update database structure and has to be removed after install / upgrade.
