    Good morning

    does someone have a list of services and daemons that can be safely and permanently disabled on a cPanel server for security?

    My system is a dedicated running CentOS 7.4 + CloudLinux.

    I have read a lot of tutorials suggesting this security measure, but it's hard for me to understand what services/daemons I can permanently disable (and how).
    I found some list somewhere (one is here), but they are quite old.

    Thank you very much.
    Cheers

    Do you have CSF installed? There's a security check tool built into it that alerts you to unneeded services.

    "Check Server Security" is the title on the button for it. :)

    Happy to help.
