CloudLinux has some powerful tools to help reduce symlink attacks.
For the most part, we don't really need them, as DA uses the "secure_access_group" method on /home/user folders, and apache itself is patched with the "harden symlinks" patch (internally swaps FollowSymlinks into SymLinksIfOwnerMatch).
Sometimes issues can arise from this extra layer of security (see some common errors, below).
If you need to disable the checks (temporariy or permananetly):
Then set them to the system, without needing a reboot:
Confirm they're set:
sysctl -a | grep -E 'fs.enforce_symlinksifowner|fs.protected_symlinks_create'
Unable to extract the directory 'backup' from the file /home/admin/admin_backups/user.admin.username.tar.gz as user username
File '/home/admin/admin_backups/user.admin.username.tar.gz' was 1234567 bytes in size, as read by root.
In this case, it was found there were symbolic links in the backup, which could not be extracted because they were pointing to root-owned files. Note, this error could be cause by other things, like file corruption, but this is one possibility.
