    Why is the cgi-bin in the public_html dir if I can still run perl scripts from anywhere?

    Also, is there a way I can not have it created on account creation, rather than having to manually go in and delete it?

    I'm kind of wondering the same thing. Clearly I can run .cgi files (with a perl #!/usr/bin/perl first line) in any web directory with very secure permissions of just 700. It doesn't need to be in cgi-bin.

    I'm running latest version of cPanel RELEASE tree.

    removing cgi-bin directory

    my question is, if it is possible to prevent the creation of the cgi-bin directory, it's not necessary (we are not permitting cgi anyways)

    the support says that it is not possible to prevent the creation of the cgi-bin directories.
