The modern usage of the phrase is a bit newer and has become the appropriate descriptor for a software product that gives the user permission to add/remove/change its source code, design, or contents.

cPanel Application Manager and App Deployment 101

Researching another piece I’ve been writing, I realized that I was grossly unfamiliar with a portion of the cPanel & WHM product. For a bit of background, I’ve been using cPanel & WHM for about nine years now, mostly from the end user and system administrator perspectives.
