Tweak Settings/Dormant services


New Member

I'm a new noob here. I've been setting up my server (ssd-2) package, and going through all the WHM settings before I start testing.

I've been researching Dormant Settings this morning and I'm still confused as to the pros/cons of using it, and, if a fella did chose to use it, which would be the best setting, cpdavd, cphulkd or cpsrvd?

If you don't plan to use the cPanel webdisk feature, you can keep cpdavd dormant. If you don't plan to load cPanel/WHM very often, you can keep cpsrvd dormant. If you don't think you will have many people trying to hack into your cPanel/WHM accounts, you can keep cphulkd dormant.

For what it's worth, I keep cpdavd and cpsrvd dormant, and leave cphulkd as-is.
Thanks, Dion. I was looking at it as a or scenario. Your info clears things up. I guess those 3 empty check boxes would have been a good clue!
