    I've noticed that some of the overloading users on our servers, do a lot more load while their statistics are being updated, backups generated...

    So I though that it would be really good to have the hability to say which users I do not want to log their access / error logs; also, the statistics of this users will not be updated (anyway if they get updated without any logging there will be 0 visitors each day).

    It would be very simply done by editting the httpd.conf but since it get's reloaded and overwritten each time, it's not really possible I think.

    Also it would be good to say which users compress or not on the backup process, because a 300M account can easily be compressed to shrink it, but a 3G one, should never be compressed.

    I hope this features comes on a future cPanel release, since they can be very usefull on some heavy sites :)

    You could use include files to effect the same changes as one would do by editing httpd.conf directly. You can read more about this at: InsideVHost < EasyApache3 < TWiki

    In EDGE we have a feature where you can enable/disable compression for all backups, but not for individual users.

    Both of these sound like good ideas. Perhaps you may want to post them to cPanel Bugzilla Main Page so we don't forget about them.
