    Hello Everyone,

    I have a server running CloudLinux/cPanel, and I'm already using CageFS to jail users in their own accounts.

    Considering that CageFS already prevents users from accessing other users' files, do you think using FileProtect in Apache (built from EA3) worth it at all and does it provide any additional benefits?

    I could not find much information about this 'FileProtect' which is available in cPanel's EasyApache.

    Thanks,
    RX

    Hello,

    CageFS includes features such as:

    Thus, FileProtect isn't really necessary because CageFS already encapsulates users into their own filesystems.

    Thank you.
