    Can you please elaborate this question... ?

    FYI: user can enable/Disable Perl extension on the website from Tool --- Scripting Manager---Perl.

    From HC you can only enable/disable perl mapping on a website but can't do any additional task  on the server.

    hummm, not sure I see how to do this at the user level. I tried to "autologin" to a user on a linux server but the user can only enable/disable PHP - maybe Im looking the wrong place. I will look some more.

    anyway its not what I want :)

    We want to make sure its not possible for resellers to offer and users to use perl/cgibin/exe anything like this. They are allowed asp/asp.net/php depending on windows/linux. Or ofcause be able to enable it for a user after we know for sure who he is and why we are enabling it.

    For us its just disabling it all together in apache config, but it would be a nice feature to disable it and not have HC write all the DIR things to httpd.conf and so on.

    Perl/PHP option will be visible to linux reseller/webadmin if these scripting languages are enable in Global setting.

    Secondly, Host or reseller can disable menu to use scripting Manager (Tool ) but we don't provide an option to hide Perl only.
