    I am getting this warning when I run a security scan:
    • 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.
    My question is, if I am running PHP-FPM service for Apache should I still install mod_ruid2 and then Jail Apache Virtual Hosts? Are they compatible, and in my case, necessary? Again, I run all sites on the server.

    Last, if the answer is that I should install this to beef up security, will this slow down my site speed?

    Hello @celiac101,

    There's an existing thread on this topic at:

    Apache vhosts are not segmented or chroot()ed

    Note that internal case (SWAT-733) open to ensure that specific Security Advisor alert reflects the fact that Mod_Ruid2 is required in order to use the "Jail Apache" option in "WHM >> Tweak Settings".

    Let me know if you have additional questions.
