Terminal in WHM
Valid for versions 82 through the latest version
Last modified: December 7, 2021
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).
If you log out of the WHM interface, all associated Terminal interface sessions will automatically close after a short period. Any commands still running in those terminal sessions will continue to run until that session closes.
The Terminal interface
Before you can access the Terminal interface, you must accept the warning notice. Click I understand and want to proceed.
Terminate a session
When you end a session in the Terminal interface, it terminates access to the interface’s terminal window. To open another session, click Reconnect.
