    Isnt it amazing that when you dont show certain options on your menus that people will try to go around that and do things they are not supposed to be doing? We removed the Interchange link from all our menus, especially in demo mode, because we dont want people installing it. We dont even offer Interchange to our clients. So when something does not display on the menus, people who know Cpanel and how it works will also install the darn thing. We even have interchange turned off in WHM yet every week we will find it installed, at least partially installed because somebody just typed the URL into their brower and deployed it. Even when the account has ZERO db's assigned. So how do we stop people accessing parts of the system we dont want them to access. If this is true for Interchange how about any other hidden option on the menus? That means they could for instance access other hidden options and features by simply typing in the request manually. Why hasnt this been thought out properly?

    Anyone know how i can stop this?

    If you have Interchange turned off, then it won't run. Therefore, it shouldn't matter if a user installs it or not.

    Just warn the user, if they continue to do it, either suspend or terminate their account ;)

    Two easy solutions...

    The pages that do the intechange setup.. either delete them, or chmod them to 000

    Then they will no longer be able to access those pages.

    Sure it wont run but it deploy all the directories and adds a gig or two in files to website. Its annoying as hell to have to delete this ever week.
