Stats Software Configuration
Use the Statistics Software Configuration interface to view information about your server’s statistics and statistics software.
Use the CloudLinux Manager interface to view LVE Manager information for accounts on your server. Note: This interface only displays for root-enabled users on CloudLinux servers.
Use the Terminal interface to access an in-browser terminal application for direct command-line access within a cPanel & WHM session.
Configure cPanel Cron Jobs
Use the Configure cPanel Cron Jobs interface to configure cron jobs for cPanel & WHM updates and backups.
Use the Tweak Settings interface to configure settings for cPanel, WHM, and their associated services.

Apache mod_userdir Tweak
Use the Apache mod_userdir Tweak interface to configure Apache’s mod_userdir module. This module enables access to a website through a URL that uses the http:// hostname/~username format.
Use the Compiler Access interface to enable or disable compiler access for unprivileged users. Many common attacks require a functional C or C++ compiler on the server.
Configure Security Policies
Use the Configure Security Policies interface to configure security measures for your server and your WHM account.
cPHulk Brute Force Protection

Shell Fork Bomb Protection
Use the Shell Fork Bomb Protection interface to ensure that users with terminal access (SSH or Telnet) cannot deplete server resources. This depletion of resources can crash your server in a fork bomb (a malicious attack). Fork bombs start a cascade of small processes that duplicate themselves until they deplete the server’s resources.
Use the SMTP Restrictions interface to configure your server so that the mail transport agent (MTA), Mailman mailing list software, and root user are the only accounts that can connect to remote SMTP servers. You may want to deny users the ability to bypass your mail server to send mail. This is a common practice for spammers.
SSH Password Authorization Tweak
Use the SSH Password Authorization Tweak interface to enable or disable passwords for SSH authentication. Important: If you disable passwords, users must use keys when they access your server via SSH.
Use the Traceroute Enable/Disable interface to configure the traceroute utility on your server. The traceroute utility, a network tool, determines the route that your network traffic uses to reach its destination.

- We recommend that you upgrade your operating system to use KernelCare, a live kernel patching service that ensures your system runs the most up-to-date kernel. This service includes security patches and symlink protection. If your system supports KernelCare, you may receive an upgrade notification in this interface. For more information, read KernelCare’s documentation.
- We recommend that you only reboot your server to troubleshoot an issue that occurs when you start your server or when you disable SELinux.
