Compilers Tweak

This tweak will disable the system's c and c++ compilers for unprivileged users. Many canned exploits require a working c compiler on the system. Unprivileged users usually have no reason to compile anything so you may want to prevent them from doing so unless you surely know that they need access to compile. You can also choose to allow some users to use the compilers while they remain disabled by default.

  1. To access the Compilers Tweak feature, click on Security, on the main screen of your WebHost Manager interface.
  2. Then click on click on Security Center.
  3. Then click on Compilers Tweak.
  4. Click on Enable Compilers to enable all users to use c and c++ compilers.
  5. To allow specific users to be able to use compilers:
    1. Click on Allow specific users to use the compilers.
    2. Click on the name of a user in the menu.
    3. Click on Add to Group.
    4. Repeat for all necessary users.
