    I hope they would use the same location for the chroot files as for the jailshell as i don't think we really need libs in 3 different locations (not to mention that it would make troubleshooting nighmarish)

    Hello,

    on another control panel site I read this ...

    ===================
    Prevent theft of customer data.
    E*** is the only control panel that prevents one customer from accessing the site content and data of another customer, maliciously or otherwise. Until now, shared hosting meant sharing customer content, with every site owner having access to every other site's data.
    E**** protects each Web site in its own virtual private file system on an otherwise shared server, providing complete security for site content. Other control panel software provides Web site owners, via shell access or simple CGI scripts, unrestricted access to the content of every other site hosted on the server. This may include password-protected confidential and commercial content; customer, order and credit card numbers stored in files; and site visitor information. Only E***** security architecture prevents unauthorized access and theft, site reconfiguration and site down-time, while allowing a hosting provider to securely delegate remote access or scripting to customers. Don't settle for anything less than this level of security to run your professional hosting business.
    ===================

    When we could dream to have the same security level on Cpanel boxes ? :(

    A virtual private file system is a server where the users are chrooted ?

    I want say ... I have no idea how works the "virtual private file system" currently used by E*sim . Using a "virtual private file system" means chrotting users ?

    From what I understand, yes, some VPS's (virtual private servers) like ensim are just chrooted environments.

    I personally cannot stand VPS's like ensim's as it can be an administration nightmare.

    Well I'm curious as to what the cpanel httpd chroot will be like.

    I assume it would make cpanel a lot more secure. No more users (or even worse, non local users) snooping around on your server with perl or php.
