Learn how to modify the CPanel bandwidth exceeded page when a clients site uses all their bandwidth up.

In this tutorial you will learn how to modify the Cpanel bandwidth exceeded page. This page is shown for clients automatically when they run out of bandwidth. Bandwidth counts are reset every month.

Step 1: Login to the server as root in SSH.

Step 2:  This will make a backup copy of the original file incase you need to revert back
cp /usr/local/cpanel/apache/mod_bwlimited.c /usr/local/cpanel/apache/mod_bwlimited.c.bak

Step 3: Then type:
 pico -w /usr/local/cpanel/apache/mod_bwlimited.c

Scroll down until you reach the section where you'll see the HTML code for the bandwidth page or do a search for it in Pico #: Ctrl+W   then paste this in: <HTML><HEAD>n<TITLE>509 Bandwidth Limit Exceeded</TITLE>

Change it to whatever you like... carefully.

Step 4: Save the file while still in pico #:
Crtl+X then Y
