[Openvas-discuss] how to create overrides for certain tests e.g. PHP via Overrides-menu-item

If you want to ignore a test altogether, you may be better off creating a
custom scan and excluding that particular test.

To go the override route, you will need to run the test against a system on
which that test will trigger.  Then, you click on the override button to
the right of the test.  When you are presented with the options, you will
want to move them all to the most general setting possible (e.g. all hosts
instead of the specific host, all tasks instead of the one that ran this
particular test, etc.).  That should effectively ignore the test for you.

I hope that helps!
