    I have a regular cpanel account on a shared server and am interested in protecting some files from access by other users on the same server after I noticed This Problem .

    It is not clear to me whether SCGI Wrap would be a solution, and if so, how to use it to protect files from being read by others. So far I could not find clear explanations.

    Thanks

    SCGI is an option that has largely been replaced by the Apache Suexec patch. Basically, it causes the scripts to be ran as the user of the account, rather than the web server user.

    SuExec usually is standard ( at least on cPanel servers ). I wouldn't let a live box loose without it!
