@Nathaniel: If you don’t know how to access to your webserver with ssh and deal with the linux system using the terminal tool (command line), you’d better not try advanced and risky plugins like it. It’s clear this tool is not for everyone. As stated, it can bring good benefit when properly installed in heavy loaded websites (which maybe it’s not your case, so you can be worrying about this long hours for no benefit).
When you get a technical problem that is over your level of expertise it can be very stressing, as time is gold in the Internet. Technical people normally don’t use CPanel to deal with their servers, they connect directly and change the config files, or at most use Virtualmin.
