For cPanel & WHM 11.44

( 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.


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.
