Hello I've played arround with ACL configuration and forgot to look at and save the initial untouched standard configuration.

What would the result of $ getfacl -aR . in an fresh webfaction accounts home folder look like?

Does the answer of this post implies that no ACLs at all are required to prevent other users on the same shared host accessing this accounts home folder?

The ACL's on a new account home directory look like this.

The "other::---" bit in the ACL on the home directory prevents other users from accessing your home directory and its contents, so yes, your home directory is secure by default.

Hope that helps!
