Apache's mod_userdir allows users to view their sites by entering a tilde (~) and their username as the url on a specific host.
http://test.cpanel.net/~fred/ will bring up the user fred's domain.
The disadvantage of this feature is that any bandwidth usage used by this site will be put on the domain it is accessed under (in this case
test.cpanel.net). mod_userdir protection prevents this from happening. You may however want to disable it on specific virtual hosts (generally shared SSL hosts.)
- To access the Apache mod_userdir Tweak feature, click on Security, on the main screen of your WebHost Manager interface.
- Then click on Security Center.
- Then click on Apache mod_userdir Tweak.
- To enable this feature place a check-mark in the checkbox next to Enable mod_userdir Protection.
- Placing a check-mark in the checkbox column for a specific host will enable this feature for that host.
- You can also enter more users in the additional users column text fields for each specific host.
- Click on the Save button to apply your settings.
