CloudLinux and CageFS integration are available from CyberPanel v1.8.6. However, before using CageFS you need to be on CloudLinux OS. So before moving forward convert your CyberPanel server to CloudLinux and install CageFS.
What is CageFS?
From the official documentation:
CageFS is a virtualized, per-user file system that uniquely encapsulates each customer, preventing users from seeing each other and viewing sensitive information. CageFS prevents a large number of attacks, including most privilege escalation and information disclosure attacks. It is completely transparent to your customers, without any need for them to change their scripts.
So now when you create any website, you can enable CageFS on the website user, that user will then see a virtualized file system.
