# yum install cagefs
# /usr/sbin/cagefsctl --init

That last command will create skeleton directory that might be around 7GB in size. If you don’t have enough disk space in /usr/share, use following commands to have cagefs-skeleton being placed in a different location

# mkdir /home/cagefs-skeleton
# ln -s /home/cagefs-skeleton /usr/share/cagefs-skeleton

On cPanel servers, if you will be placing skeleton into /home directory, you must configure the following option in:

cPanel WHM WHM -> Server Configuration -> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup -> Basic Config -> Additional home directories
