    Hey hey!  I'm not aware of any published list.  When I need to reference something in particular, I just create a new test account and look there.

    For system files, I'm always happy to answer those:

    1 - /home/username is always user:user 711.  public_html is usually user:user 755 unless you have fileprotect enabled: https://docs.cpanel.net/ea4/apache/the-easyapache-4-fileprotect-option/

    2 - All files should be 644 and directories 755 by default

    3 - Includes are always 600 root:root

    4 - /etc/apache2/conf.d/modsec is root:root 755

    that should be fine. There is a cool script with which you can use to mass restore default permissions on folders inside accounts:

    Hey! Thank you. But what about the ownership of public_html and other domain's public roots? For me, it's user nobody, is that OK? My cPanel is creating them like this, I checked.

    What values are for include folders?

    Thanks! That script looks cool but it only services user folders.

    What about these two:

    • /etc/apache2/conf.d/modsec/modsec2.user.conf
    • folders inside /etc/apache2/conf.d/userdata

    Thank you! I had some folders in /etc/apache2/conf.d/userdata with 700.
