    What protects one web site on a cpanel server -- or the server itself -- from bad or poor practices (such as php or cgi that has XSS or other vulnerabilities) in another site on the same server? I have a small group of clients (under 2 dozen), only need web and sftp, so unless cpanel offers some form of easy security separation, I'm wondering if I'm better off just using straight apache with virtual sites.
    Thanks

    Hello :)

    The PHP handler that you use partly contributes to this. You can find documentation on the PHP handlers available at:

    Apache PHP Request Handling

    Thank you.
