For cPanel & WHM 11.46

( Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings )

 

Enable FormMail-clone CGI

This setting allows you to make the FormMail-clone CGI script available to your users in cPanel's CGI Center interface (Home >> Software and Services >> CGI Center). This script allows users to publish a form through which their websites' visitors can email them.

This setting defaults to Off.

Note:

If your cPanel users do not use this script properly, it could pose security risks for your server. We recommend that you select Off.

 

Dormant services

This setting allows you to cause a service to unload itself from memory after it is idle for five minutes, while it opens a listening service in its place. This reduces memory usage, but delays responses from dormant services.

You can enable this behavior for the following services:

  • cpdavd — cPanel's WebDav daemon.
  • cphulkd — cPanel's brute force protection daemon.
  • cpsrvd — The cPanel & WHM service manager daemon.

 

Maintenance cPanel RPM Check

Warning:

We strongly recommend that you do not disable this setting. If you disable this setting, the system will not check existing RPMs for problems during updates or maintenance. This could leave your system vulnerable to unnoticed tampering or other risks.

 

This setting allows you to specify whether the system runs the /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms script to check cPanel RPMs for problems during nightly maintenance. If these checks encounter problems, the system sends a notification to the administrator. For more information, read our The /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms Script documentation.

This setting defaults to On.

 

Maintenance cPanel RPM Digest Check

Important:

We strongly recommend that you enable this setting. If you disable this setting, the /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms script only validates file sizes, and files may change without detection.

Note:

This setting is only available if you have enabled the Maintenance cPanel RPM Check setting.

 

This setting allows you to specify whether the system runs a digest check against existing RPMs during nightly maintenance. This check ensures that RPM files are not corrupt, and that nothing has tampered with them.

If you disable this setting, the system will run the /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms script with the --no-digest option. For more information , read our The /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms Script documentation.

This setting defaults to On.
