    May I know how CageFS and VirtFS work together? I see that there's an article by CloudLinux here something about shell access. Does this mean that if both are enabled, security is compromised?

    I haven't done any customizations on CageFS nor CloudLinux so I've left those to their defaults.

    Hello,


    I think you might be best served by reading CloudLinux's documentation on CageFS here: CageFS


    Thanks!

    Ok but can you confirm that leaving them to defaults, both cPanel Jailshell/VirtFS and CloudLinux CageFS enabled (which uses /bin/bash), would still be fine and secure and not mess with any files or configs?

    CageFS restricts users to their own directories, it should be fine to do this, it's just an added security measure to chroot them. Unfortunately in some cases the experimental setting conflicts with other modules.
