If you want to know how to install cagefs, you need to know where to look and how to do it. If you want to install cagefs on a server, the easiest place to look is WHM (web host management system). Once there, you need to look for the plugin and then activate it. Here are some tips that you may find useful. If you are not sure where to find it, you can read my other articles on this topic.

LSWS mount point

To install LSWS mount point in cageFS, you need to first install LSWS. Once installed, you can use it as a virtual host. If you don’t have a virtual host yet, follow these instructions to create one. You may need to reformat your existing partition first. Once you have done that, you can install your mount point and the root partition. The mount point will be located on the / partition.

Virtualized file system

CloudLinux, Inc., a commercial Linux shared hosting provider, announced the release of CafeFS 3, a virtualized file system that cages each customer within its own virtualized file system. This technology prevents a vast majority of attacks and increases security and efficiency. It is transparent to customers, requiring no script changes. The cloud-based OS is based on CloudLinux, which increases stability, density, and security.

CageFS is a full-featured virtual file system. Each user’s virtual file system contains only his or her personal files and system files. This means that other users cannot view other users’ files, processes, or SUID scripts. It is impenetrable to hackers, and it is completely transparent to users. CageFS is free from a lot of security flaws, but its advantages make it the best choice for many web-based applications.

With its per-user design, CageFS provides exceptional security and functionality. It prevents cross-directory sharing by providing unique user encapsulation. It also allows users to be isolated without the need to adjust scripts. The cage file system is transparent to users and does not require a server restart to make changes. It can be installed and configured on a virtual machine in a matter of minutes. In addition, CageFS offers advanced configuration options for the users of a given server.

Among the many features of CageFS are its ability to protect your data from symlink attacks and tampering with server configuration files. CageFS also allows you to choose a PHP version. For instance, CageFS can be installed on a CloudLinux server with at least 7GB of free disk space. This virtual file system makes it possible to run applications safely on a cloud server.


If you’ve ever wondered how to install LVE cagefs, read this. It is a virtual file system per user, which prevents the disclosure of sensitive information and most privilege escalation attacks. This tool also allows you to limit the number of concurrent users and CPU cycles per user. The following steps will show you how to install LVE cagefs and start using it in your web hosting account.

In order to set the CPU and memory limits per account, you’ll need to install the LVE manager, which comes by default with CentOS. You’ll also need to install the LVE-Stats 2 tool, which collects LVE usage statistics and allows you to query the data. To install LVE cagefs, you need to use DirectAdmin to set up your server. This tool can detect the environment of your server, including whether it is virtual, using a control panel, or using specific hardware.

Once you’ve installed LVE, you need to activate it with the activation_key. The activation key is found in the LVE manager. Once you’ve done that, you can use CageFS to store and access data on your storage. However, you shouldn’t forget to backup your data every now and then. This will help you avoid wasting precious storage space. If you’re unsure about how to install LVE, you can check the CageFS documentation for more information.

Activation key

An Activation key for CageFS is essential for the system to work properly. After you install it, you will have to add it to the CageFS activation list so that it will recognize the software. This is done using the command line. You can also manually activate the CageFS on a server by following a step-by-step guide. The steps are as follows:


There are two main ways to install CageFS. The native version of PHP, which comes from the operating system’s repository, will be installed automatically when you run ISPmanager. There is also an alternative PHP version, which comes from the CloudLinux repository, and is installed to /opt/alt. If you wish to use CageFS for your files, you must enable the CageFS file system option. To enable CageFS, follow these steps.

Installing CageFS will allow you to install a virtualized file system that contains each user in their own cage. This will prevent other users from seeing each other’s files, as well as preventing access to server configuration files. Unlike a traditional file system, CageFS will detect and install itself in your Apache web server. You will also have to install a plugin that allows you to manage initialization, updates, and users.

Alternatively, you can manually install CageFS using the CloudLinux command. After installing CageFS, you need to activate the CloudLinux license activation key using the root password. Once you’re done, click the “Start” button. Then, select “Suspend” and “Restart” from the login menu. If you’re not using CloudLinux, you can install the CloudLinux plugin.


When you are using cPanel, you might want to consider enabling CageFS. By default, it creates accounts in the wrong places. You can change this by enabling CageFS in the WHM section of the server. After you enable CageFS, you should configure it in the server’s cPanel configuration. In some cases, you may even be able to disable it entirely.

There are several steps to configure CageFS. First, install the LVE Manager and PHP Selector. Using the PHP Selector, you can choose the default version of PHP and the modules available to it. You must be logged into your CageFS server in order to change the default password. Afterward, type cagefsctl -list-disabled to list disabled users. Then, enter the passwords of the users you want to block.

After installing CageFS, make sure you have enough disk space for it. It requires at least 7GB of disk space. It has a plugin for WHM, which makes it easy to install on Windows and Mac OS X. It also supports Plesk, DirectAdmin, InterWorx, and ISP Manager. You can even switch between these modes if you wish, but you must remember that this option is only active on a few hosts.
