    Hi,

    Running 4 sevres with most current cPanel installed.
    Jailed Shell has always been "OFF"

    Looking in the folder VirtFS on all servers there are between 1-4 users in each VirtFS folder. seeing that shell has always been turned off why are the accounts in the VirtFS folders?

    and it appears that each account holds the same structure:
    Code:
    root [/home/virtfs/foreforu]# du --max-depth=1 | sort -n | awk 'BEGIN {OFMT = "%.0f"} {print $1/1024,"MB", $2}'
    du: cannot access `./usr/local/apache/domlogs/investorchitchat.com-bytes_log.bkup': No such file or directory
    0 MB ./proc
    0 MB ./dev
    1 MB ./etc
    6 MB ./bin
    13 MB ./sbin
    24 MB ./lib64
    31 MB ./opt
    42 MB ./tmp
    227 MB ./lib
    2499 MB ./home
    8447 MB ./usr
    22439 MB ./var
    33730 MB .
    
    Under the account folders they all hold folders such as /var /user...

    Thanks
    Frank

    The jailed environment is now used for running cron jobs I believe as well as some exim processes, the latter depending on the shell configured

    VirtFS (Jailed Shell)

    Edit: Jail System Update | cPanel Releases so if you've got noshell for accounts you'll also get jailshell behaviours

    Hello :)

    Yes, this is the expected behavior. As mentioned in the previous post, this change was implemented in cPanel version 11.38. More information is available at:

    11.38 - Jailed System Update

    Thank you.
