cPanel Access Alternative to Finish Project

cPanel Access Level

I have built a new website for a client in WordPress and require cpanel access to update all data on the new website accordingly. My client refuses to provide cpanel access because they had a mysql injection with tons of spam links on the website several months ago and are paranoid about providing access to anyone. I am at an impasse with my client because they refuse to provide access to cpanel. I shared an empty dropbox folder for them to share the files with me without jeopardizing the live website and they still refuse.

What can I do here to complete the website with the important information while respecting my clients privacy?

Please help. Thank you.

Hi :),

If the website is built in Wordpress then you can ask the client to create a separate User for you so that you can access the Wordpress backend and update the website.

If still they are not comfortable, then nothing to do.
