    When you transfer accounts cPanel to cPanel on Cloud Linux / cagefs environment, do symbolic links also transfer?

    I've come across some applications that have failed because symbolic links were not transferred. Now looking at the transfer logs I see no such file or directory on the symbolic links so I am wondering if those just do not transfer?

    Best regards,
    Eric

    Hi Eric,

    Is the CloudLinux Link Traversal Protection feature enabled on this system? If so, note the issue you described is a known problem with CloudLinux/CageFS when the fs.protected_symlinks_create kernel setting is enabled. CloudLinux published a blog post about this setting at:

    Symlink protection and cPanel

    Thank you.
