    What exactly does the fileprotect checkbox in EA3 do? This seems to be different than open_basedir. It seems to be some sort of patch developed by cpanel for suphp, but what is the purpose of it?

    I cannot tell you its mechanism of action, however Fileprotect in EA3 is "Prevent Users from reading other webroots" in previous EA. I've always used it.
