    Uninstall/disable unused scripts/services on cPanel

    Hi all

    We understand that the following scripts will be installed as part of a Virtuozzo VPS with cPanel:
    - Apache (cpanel version, includes mod_ssl/frontpage extensions)
    - PHP (cpanel version)
    - Webmail: Horde, NeoMail, SquirrelMail
    - Database : MySQL (Default), PostgreSQL (available)
    - Web/Mail Stats : Analog, Webalizer, Awstats, EximStats
    - FTP Daemons : proftpd (Default), pure-ftpd (available)
    - E-Commerce : interchange
    - Chat servers : entropychat (html based), melange (java based)
    - Mail related : Spamassassin, autoresponders, mail filtering, mail
    forwarding, majordomo mailing list manager and spamd (spamassassin
    - Web Related : Redirects, phpBB (bulletin board), phpMyChat, HotLink
    protection, Search engine submission.
    - CGI Scripts : FormMail, CGI Email, Random HTML Generator,
    Simple/Advanced Guestbook, Visitor Counter, Countdown clock, Java Clock,
    Entropy Banner (rotating banner ads).
    - System related : Disk quotas, Customizable backup, Bandmin, Ability to
    cluster, Scan for trojan viruses, AIM/ICQ/Pager notification and Shell
    fork bomb/memory hog protection.
    - Daemons (general): ftp, pop, imap, smtp, dns

    Since our target clients only need about one-fifth of what is actually included, can anyone offer any pointers as to whether it's possible/advisable to disable (or not install) those scripts/services that aren't used at all? If so, how? During the initial configuration phase or through WHM subsequently?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Some of those can be disabled in WHM under the Services section, or in the WHM Setup section.
