    Are those folders related to cPanel.

    Code:
    /opt/cpanel/ <-- I understand that this one is legit
    /opt/curlssl/
    /opt/libmcrypt/
    /opt/lua/                 <-- #which lua returns /usr/bin/lua
    /opt/pcre/
    /opt/php_with_imap_client/
    /opt/postupcp/
    /opt/rh/
    /opt/suphp/
    /opt/tidy/
    /opt/xml2/
    /opt/xslt/
    1)Does cPanel ever stored at or does it currently use any of those folders in the /opt/ ?
    I'm worried especially about the /opt/php_with_imap_client/ because google results related to this are not optimistic. Inside there is a file /opt/php_with_imap_client/version with content just
    Code:
    2007f-cpanel
    2)Could those above been publicly accessible in anyway?

    I think that when I got the dedicated box it was delivered to me without a fresh clean as most of those are dated in 2013 (a couple of years earlier than i got the box).

    Hi,

    Not all files in this filesystem area belongs to the cPanel, most of them are default filesystems.. /opt/suphp/ was used previously, but it has moved to /etc now in new builds.. In new cPanel builts, you will see /opt/cpanel and this is important one for PHP customization..

    No, they are not accessible publically..

    Hello,

    The directories you see in /opt appear to correspond to a system using EasyApache 3, as it's normal to see those directories when using EA3. With EasyApache 4, you will notice the following directory instead:

    /opt/cpanel/

    Thank you.
