    Some clients of mine are used to using the "www" folder.

    Is there a way to hide the "www" folder from their view, and only the Public_HTML and the other folders in its place?

    www is actually a symlink to the public_html folder, you may remove the symlink if wish to

    actually, it sort of is.

    One guy was mad because he couldn't change his permissions on the "www" directory...i told him to not touch that directory, and to upload/use the public_html directory....which allowed him to change permissions.

    Was kinda hoping if there was a way to hide it from view so it'd save on the confusion in the future.

    So, www confuses them, but .cpanel-datastore, .gnupg and the rest do not? You might want to explain to them what it is and that should solve it.
