Shibboleth SP and cPanel

cPanel is a web hosting management tool used by many providers.

It's a proprietary solution and apparently has different than the standard Apache approach to virtualization.

By "standard approach" I meant your documentation describing Native SP Application model:

I have a setup that works fine on a server without cPanel but when I tried to port it to a hosting provider that is 
using cPanel it fails. Even the status page can't be seen.  The provider is using same version of CentOS as me
and as far as I know, the only difference is the cPanel. The Shib log files look fine and no errors are recorded.

Do anybody from the Shibboleth community successfully deployed SP on a cPanel managed hosting solution?
