    Hi All,

    I've had a search of these forums, and couldn't really find anything useful, so I'd just like to ask the following:

    How can I stop cgi-bin being created during account setup, and also when deleting it via FTP, it re-creates itself upon next login.

    I have cgi script alias set to 'n' in 'Basic cPanel/WHM configuration', and I also untick the box with cgi-bin when creating an account.

    This isn't a major problem, but it's quite annoying, as myself and none of my users actually use the cgi-bin.

    Similarly, is it possible to remove the cgi-bin from directories when creating sub-domains?

    Thanks for your time,
    Nick.

    Is it worth submitting a cPanel bug for this?

    Is it a bug or a feature?

    What is the best way to get rid of cgi-bin? If cgi is not activated for the account and a alias creation is set to no, IMHO the accounts cgi-bin shouldn't be recreated every day. But perhaps there is a way to get cpanel to not recreate cgi-bin
