hell guys im new here but i need some help ./

I own a MyBB forum and after scanning him with acunetix for something like vulnerabilies i found that i have 14 open ports lol.
I feel unsafe with this open ports , Im not a hacker but i have hear that open ports will allow hackers to harm my website .

Can someone help me or teach me how to close this open ports ?

list or ports are :

Code:
1/tcpmux, 22/ssh, 21/ftp, 25/smtp, 80/http, 111/rpcbind, 110/pop3, 119/nntp, 143/imap, 443/https, 465/smtps, 993/imaps, 995/pop3s, 3306/mysql

Sad
Those ports need to be opened,or no?

That's what he's asking Smile

1/tcpmux - ?
22/ssh - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for shell access on servers.
21/ftp - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for FTP file transfers.
25/smtp - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for Secured file teansfers.
80/http - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for browser connections.
111/rpcbind - ?
110/pop3 - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for email forwarding.
119/nntp - ?
143/imap - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for email forwarding.
443/https - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for secure browser connections.
465/smtps - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for secured email forwarding.
993/imaps - Yes, needs to remain open. Used for secured email forwarding.

Feel free to correct me if i'm wrong, and feel free to add in the missing ones. I'm mostly guessing, but it's an educated guess Smile
As I said before, you need to ask your host about this, you can't close ports they've got open... and they probably won't like it if you try.
