Valid for versions 82 through the latest version
Last modified: September 29, 2020
The Terminal interface allows you to access an in-browser terminal application for direct command-line access within a cPanel & WHM session.
Resellers must possess the Everything ACL for this interface to appear in WHM. For more information, read the Root Access section of our Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges documentation.
Alternatively, some resellers may be able to use cPanel’s Terminal interface (cPanel >> Home >> Advanced >> Terminal).

Before you can access the terminal application, you must accept the warning notice. Click I understand and want to proceed.
Terminate a session
When you end a session in the Terminal application, it terminates access to the interface’s terminal window. To open another session, click Reconnect.
