    Hello :)

    The use of "HTTP Authentication" with cPanel/WHM is discouraged, therefore the option was removed from the "Tweak Settings" interface. This is noted in the 11.42 release notes:

    11.42 Release Notes - Removed Settings

    Thank you.

    Is there a way to disable this option manually ?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can modify the following option in /var/cpanel/cpanel.config:

    skiphttpauth=1

    The "1" indicates that HTTP authentication is skipped. You would change it to "0" if you prefer to have the authentication pop-up occur. Remember to restart cPanel after making a change to this value.

    Thanks.
