The mod_cpanel Apache module replaces the Optimize .htaccess (AllowOverride) feature that existed in the Global Configuration section of WHM's Apache Configuration interface (WHM >> Home >> Service Configuration >> Apache Configuration). We removed the Optimize .htaccess feature with the release of TSR-2018-0002. This module also redirects any requests sent to a suspended user's files.


Use the mod_cpanel Apache module to improve how Apache processes requests. This module caches requests for .htaccess files that do not exist, which allows Apache to skip these files when it processes later requests. 


This module requires EasyApache 4 and Apache 2.4 or later.  


This module has no known compatibility issues.
