    I have several cPanel accounts thru a reseller account. I created a framework of templates, classes and function libraries that i would like to share accross multiple accounts. These are all files that do NOT need to be accessed directly from the internet.

    I currently copy the files to each account when something changes.

    I assume that I need to give rights to the folder i want to share, but how do I do that, and how do I give rights to only allow certain other sites to access it?

    Related to this question: Are the paths i see real or virtual? If i have an account site1 and site2 (/home/site1/public_html/ and /home/site2/public_html/) are that the real paths on the server hard disk?

    I am going to assume you are using SuPHP and SuExec, otherwise you would be able to simply include files as desired from scripts on other accounts.

    In this scenario, I believe the only way to allow scripts to be shared among users would be to somehow assign them to a group and assign the scripts group privileges. However, in a cPanel/WHM environment, user files are typically granted ownership of user:user where the user is the group as well.

    The paths you see are real.
