    Hi,

    Since the last update, php session tmp dir had changed to /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-phpXX.
    I have some practices about /tmp (noexec, etc) to keep this folder safefy.

    Is it safe to use session.save_path in /var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-phpXX?

    Thank you!
    Joao

    Hello Joao,

    Improved security was one of the key reasons for utilizing a new PHP tmp location in cPanel 64. Here's a quote from our MultiPHP INI Editor for WHM document that explains how this works:

    Thank you.
