    I have cPanel Recommended Profiles: Mod Ruid2 since I'm using suPHP PHP handler.

    I'm not reselling, rather will simply be hosting a WordPress Multisite.

    CENTOS 6.5 x86_64 vmware – mail
    WHM 11.44.1 (build 18)

    'EXPERIMENTAL: Jail Apache Virtual Hosts using mod_ruid2 and cPanel® jailshell' = ON

    'Jailed Apache is enabled'

    'Use cPanel® jailshell by default' = Mount limited /proc (RHEL/CentOS 6)+, Full /proc (RHEL/CentOS 5/xenpv) default

    Manage Shell Access = Jailed Shell ------ note: this relates to SSH root login, which I'm looking at separately.


    File ETag

    System Default: All
    PCI Recommendation: None

    ExecCGI ---- SELECTED
    FollowSymLinks ---- SELECTED
    Includes ----- Unticked
    IncludesNOEXEC ---- SELECTED
    Indexes ---- SELECTED
    MultiViews ----- Unticked
    SymLinksIfOwnerMatch ---- SELECTED


    Does the 'Include' refer to PHP Include Directive?

    cPanel Security Advisor shows a message as attached. Is this simply a notice, a reminder of sorts, or is it referring to an incomplete configuration?

    Kind regards

    Hello :)

    The "Includes" option you are referring to is for Apache, not PHP. Per it's description when enabled:

    Server-side includes provided by mod_include are permitted.

    The screenshot you attached is simply a notice. It's telling you that if "Jailed Apache" is not enabled, you will see those warning messages present in "Security Advisor".

    Thank you.
