    Hello. I need to know if Cpanel have reserved the name "manual"?
    So nobody can create/use a folder/directory with that name?

    For example: http://www.manufrog.com/manual/

    I have not created that directory, but I can create it and upload files into it - but thoose files can't be reached in a browser.
    I can also remove the directory, and still the Apache Manual page loads.

    I listen with a serveradmin, and he said "manual" was reserved for Cpanel.
    I tried different created accounts/domains at 2 different servers, and they all have the "manual" page as default.

    Is this how it's suppose to be, or can I remove the Apache Manual page for the created accounts?

    Go on, have a guess
    It's a standard apache thing. If you look for the following lines in httpd.conf and remove them or comment them out and then restart httpd /manual should then work as you want it to:

    Code:
         Alias /manual/ "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/manual/"
    
        <Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/manual">
            Options Indexes FollowSymlinks MultiViews
            AllowOverride None
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
        </Directory>
