Thanks Dom just did this on my server =]. Good to do this cause anyone knowing you use cpanel/whm can see your customers and email them better offers etc etc. They can try stealing customers since domains are listed.

EDIT

300 posts I am the man :)

Why not edit the httpd.conf file to only allow viewing of /BANDWIDTH from your IP address? I think that would be the easiest way.

Not for most people that have a different IP everyday. my IP's are leased at 6 months, maybe different per isp

You have to create a password file and set up an .htaccess

After connecting to your server via ssh, enter these commands (change USERNAME to whatever you want)

/usr/local/apche/bin/htpasswd -c /usr/local/bandmin/.passwd USERNAME

create .htaccess with pico by typing

pico /usr/local/bandmin/htdocs/.htaccess

.htaccess should contains:

AuthType Basic
AuthName &Only Authorized Individuals&
AuthUserFile /usr/local/bandmin/.passwd
Require user USERNAME

HT* Script

I created [b:4e6e1d1241]this script[/b:4e6e1d1241] for my customers to use during our PRE-CPANEL days. Hope it helps.

It has worked for all others, you can try as much as you want that will not cause any problem to your system
focus on the USERNAME and the locations,

If you would like I can do it for you too.

bandwidth deny acces

In httpd.conf put this

&Directory /usr/local/bandmin/htdocs/&
Order deny,allow
Allow from xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24
Deny from all
&/Directory&

Where xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24 is the IP class from where you are connectig.
If you change your IP address at every 6 month, simply connect to the server and edit the IP.
