    If this is disabled in the tweak security does this mean users in shell have no access or everyuser has no access except root? Just so I fully understand this option...

    So if someone used wget to download a tar.gz file into /tmp or where-ever for that matter...untar it and to actually run it or make it work, this is where compilers comes into play yes?


    Trying to fully understand this im having a major brain fart today.

    Compilers are used when you compile software, such as compiling a new kernel from source, or anything from source. In a webhosting environment, really only root should have access to compilers and noone else.
