For cPanel & WHM 11.48
How do I delete an account?
You can delete an account with WHM's Terminate Account interface (Home >> Account Functions >> Terminate an Account).
How can I find out where all of a user's files are?
A discrepancy between quotas and
du -sh /home/username command might indicate that that user's UID owns some other files on the system.
To find these, run the
find / -user username -ls command on the command line.
- The output is a long list of all files that the user owns.
- Redirect the output to a file.
I just created a new account. Why does it show disk space usage?
A terminated or deleted account may still have files that the previous user's UID owns. When you create a new account, the system assigns it the next available UID, which may come from a terminated account. The new account assumes ownership of all files that the previous user owns. This gives the appearance that the new user is already over quota, even though they have not uploaded anything.
Also, tarballs such as
.tar.gz may have files that are owned by the user that tarred them. When those files are untarred on your server, they are assigned to the ownership of the account which has that UID.

cPanel & WHM comes with the following web statistics software:
You can enable your preferred web statistics software in WHM's Statistics Software Configuration interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Statistics Software Configuration).
When I create a domain, are web statistics automatically generated?
Yes. You can set the interval at which your web statistics software will update in the Schedule Configuration section in the Statistics Software Configuration interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Statistics Software Configuration).
How can I fix quotas that do not work?
Check for quota support on the mounted filesystems:
If the entries are not in the
/etc/fstab file, use a text editor to add them. If they are present, verify that there is support for quotas in the kernel and that any relevant modules are loaded.
Check that the quota files are present and are not zero byte files:
If these files do not exist, run the
/scripts/initquotas script. If they do exist, but quotas do not work, you can either delete the quota files and run the
initquotas script or run the
repquota -a command prints out the soft and hard limits with grace periods for all users.
If quotas still do not report anything in WHM or cPanel, access the System section in WHM's Tweak Settings interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings). Set the Cache disk quota information option to
Off. Then click Save at the bottom of the interface.
How can I set up a default page that the server generates when I create a new domain?
Set up a default page in the
/root/cpanel3-skel/public_html/ directory. This is the default page for all accounts that you add.
Does cPanel & WHM support multiple levels of permissions?
Yes. cPanel & WHM supports
root users that can create or modify any domain and have access to all features of the cPanel and WHM interfaces.
We also support resellers, who intend to manage their own customer's accounts. However, you can easily modify reseller access so that they only have privileges to perform tasks such as the suspension or unsuspension of domains. Resellers have access to the cPanel interface and a limited subset of the functionality of the WHM interface.
Lastly, there is the hosting account owner, who has an account in the cPanel interface and can manage most aspects of a website by themselves (within boundaries that the reseller or a user with
root access sets).
When a user logs in to cPanel, they receive the following message: "There is a problem with this website's security certificate". How do I stop this message?
You can change the certificates for cPanel & WHM with WHM's Manage Service SSL Certificates interface (Home >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates).
You will need to replace the self-signed certificate with one that common browsers trust. To purchase an SSL certificate through WHM, use the Purchase & Install SSL Certificate interface (Home >> SSL/TLS >> Purchase and Install SSL Certificates).
Is there a way to access webmail, cPanel, and WHM from behind a firewall?
WHM allows your customers to access the following services from behind a firewall, through port
cpanel.example.com— The customer's cPanel account.
whm.example.com— The customer's WHM account.
webdisk.example.com— The customer's Web Disk account.
webmail.example.com— The customer's webmail account.
In these examples,
example.com stands for the customer's domain.
To enable this feature, select the following options in WHM's Tweak Settings interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings).
- Proxy subdomains
- Proxy subdomain creation
You can also use the
/scripts/proxydomains script to manually reconfigure the DNS entries.
Can I run cPanel behind NAT?
Yes, cPanel & WHM supports 1:1 NAT configurations. For more information, read our 1:1 NAT documentation.
Previous versions of cPanel & WHM allowed you to run cPanel & WHM behind a NAT firewall. However, the system has changed. If you use more than one server behind the NAT, which means that more than one appears from behind the same public IP address, the license server will lock the public IP address out to prevent abuse.

You can change the value of the Maximum POP3 Connections Per IP setting in WHM's Mailserver Configuration interface (Home >> Service Configuration >> Mailserver Configuration).

You can change the value of the smtp_accept_max setting in WHM's Exim Configuration Manager interface (Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager).
