    Go on, have a guess
    You should never run X on a web server, it's a massive security risk - that's why cPanel will always disable it.

    Question for Chirpy

    Chirpy in what way is X Server a security risk, surely a propperly configured firewall will stop people using it...

    Sorry for the silly question I just am curious and wish to understand.

    Thanks
