    Apache vhosts are not segmented or chroot()ed.

    Enable “Jail Apache” in the “Tweak Settings” area, and change users to jailshell in the “Manage Shell Access” area. Consider a more robust solution by using “CageFS on CloudLinux”

    if i do this what benefit i will get and what problem i will face?

    Hello :)

    Here are the benefits of using software such as CageFS. This comes directly from the CageFS documentation:

    Only safe binaries are available to user
    User will not see any other users, and would have no way to detect presence of other users & their user names on the server
    User will not be able to see server configuration files, such as Apache config files.
    User's will have limited view of /proc file system, and will not be able to see other' users processes

    Thank you.
