hi everyone
i have nessus2.2.4 installed on my fc11,
i want to manually install new nessus-plugin,
so the last plugin is in: /usr/local/lib/nessus/plugins
should i remove it for the new installation?
or just install the new one without removing anything

First make a backup copy of the plugin within /usr/local/lib/nessus/plugins;
cp -p /usr/local/lib/nessus/plugins/plugin_name ~/plugin_name.backup

Then put the new plugin in the directory.
Should work without a problem!

However, I'm curious; is this a custom plugin, or one that's just not updated/installed by Nessus itself?
