    To enable the temp URL, login to the WHM as root access the option Main >> Security >> Security Center. Under Security Center access the option Apache mod_userdir Tweak. Check the option Enable mod_userdir Protection & DefaultHost (nobody). At the bottom of the page click Save.

    You are done !

    Enabling the protection means disabling access to http://server/~username. If you want to allow access to ~username, disable the protection.

    Note, disabling the protection can result in bandwidth abuse as whatever comes before /~ is where the bandwidth consumption is counted for, not the username.
