    I've read, re-read, googled, and read some more but I'm still butting up against this issue.

    Under WHM -> Apache mod_userdir Tweak

    I have Enable mod_userdir Protection check marked.
    No hosts are excluded from protection.

    The following occurs:
    accessing http://IP_ADDRESS/~root/ -> 403 Forbidden (along with nobody/admin, other users on the server return 404)
    accessing http://IP_ADDRESS/~random_account_that_doesn't_exist/ -> 404 Not Found

    Desired functionality:
    any attempt to access a user account returns a 404.

    PCI Compliance is fine with setting ErrorDocuments for both error codes (403 and 404) to the same content/response code but I'm not sure how to accomplish that with the standard cPanel error pages that are served by the server IP address or hostname pages.
