    In the Apache template main.default located in /var/cpanel/templates/apoache2/ is see a couple of times "UserDir disable".

    According to the Apache documentation it should be "UserDir disabled" with a "d" at the end.

    I assume this is a bug and it could cause security risks. Can someone confirm this is a bug, and if so... where is the right place to post a bug?

    There is a link, up top of the forums on every page titled "Defects" that will get you going in the right direction if needed.

    Searching that file I can find no "UserDir disable" all say "UserDir disabled"

    That is strange... here is one example... see the last line...

    Code:
    # CPANEL/WHM/WEBMAIL/WEBDISK/AUTOCONFIG PROXY SUBDOMAINS
    <VirtualHost[% FOREACH nvh IN nvh_slice %] [% nvh %][% END %]>
        ServerName [% servername %]
        ServerAlias cpanel.* whm.* webmail.* webdisk.* autodiscover.* autoconfig.*
        DocumentRoot [% serverroot %]/htdocs
        ServerAdmin [% serveradmin %]
        [%- IF supported.mod_suphp %]
        <IfModule mod_suphp.c>
            suPHP_UserGroup nobody nobody
        </IfModule>
        [%- END %]
        [%- IF supported.mod_security2 %]
        <IfModule mod_security2.c>
            SecRuleEngine Off
        </IfModule>
        [%- END %]
        [%- IF supported.mod_userdir && userdirprotect_enabled && defaultvhost.userdirprotect != '-1' %]
        UserDir disable
    I will report this bug.

    Mine looks like this:

    Code:
    # CPANEL/WHM/WEBMAIL/WEBDISK PROXY SUBDOMAINS
    [% END %]
    <VirtualHost[% FOREACH nvh IN nvh_slice %] [% nvh %][% END %]>
        ServerName [% servername %]
    [% IF autodiscover_proxy_subdomains %]
        ServerAlias cpanel.* whm.* webmail.* webdisk.* autodiscover.* autoconfig.*
    [% ELSE %]
        ServerAlias cpanel.* whm.* webmail.* webdisk.*
    [% END %]
        DocumentRoot [% serverroot %]/htdocs
        ServerAdmin [% serveradmin %]
        [%- IF supported.mod_suphp %]
        <IfModule mod_suphp.c>
            suPHP_UserGroup nobody nobody
        </IfModule>
        [%- END %]
        [%- IF supported.mod_security2 %]
        <IfModule mod_security2.c>
            SecRuleEngine Off
        </IfModule>
        [%- END %]
        [%- IF supported.mod_userdir && userdirprotect_enabled && defaultvhost.userdirprotect != '-1' %]
        UserDir disabled
        [%- IF defaultvhost.userdirprotect != '' %]
        UserDir enabled [% defaultvhost.userdirprotect %]
