    I am new and non technical person. I want to start one forum with xenforo but I read that when you start forum there is big risk of malware and virus. How can I deal with it?.
    Please guide me.

    If you or your host have the server set up properly, then you shouldn't even get malware. Having HTTPS is even better.

    Now, if your server does happen to be infected, here are a couple things you can do:
    1. Ensure you're on the latest version of the forum software
    2. Ensure there are no backdoors that would allow the attacker to access the server again (or another attacker to access the server) when you remove the malware

    This forum is for pre-sales enquires related to XF.

    You will need to post elsewhere for server support, or you can post in the relevant forum once you have purchased a license.
