    I'd like to try out the recommended method of 'securing' local hdd partitions as outlined on

    However, I wanted to know if anyone see anything there which MAY NOT work with Cpanel and/or 'break' anything.

    In particular, the 'nosuid' on both /tmp and /home

    Afaik Cpanel has made modifications such that /tmp can now be safely mounted with 'noexec' but I need to find out if there other options listed on the above URL will break anything..

    In particular:

    /dev/hdX /tmp ext3 nosuid,nodev,noexec,noatime 1 2


    LABEL=/home /home ext3 nosuid,nodev,noatime 1 2

    For example, when doing an apache recompile (easyapache) it writes temp files in /home/cpapachebuild .. does that need suid?

    Thanks! Support Ticket Number:
