    Hi,

    I want users to be able to login from my website to cpanel without giving username or password like in whmcs.

    I tried the below code from: Guide to API Authentication - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

    I'm able to get 2 urls from api:
    10.0.0.1:2083/cpsess5394331821/login/?session=username%3aD3SDQS2C8zc4Hkqe%3acreate_user_session%2cd4c7ca8292935fc1a0f290c0710d792e

    10.0.0.1:2083/cpsess5394331821/frontend/paper_lantern/index.html?login=1&post_login=20281846205496

    but when I redirect neither of them logs the user into cpanel(goes to login page).
    Can anyone please point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    PHP:
    <?php
    $whmusername 
    "whmuser";
    $cpanel_user "cpaneluser";
    # The contents of /root/.accesshash
    $hash "";

    $query "https://10.0.0.1:2087/json-api/create_user_session?api.version=1&user=$cpanel_user&service=cpaneld";

    $curl curl_init();
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST,0);
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER,0);
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);

    $header[0] = "Authorization: WHM $whmusername:" preg_replace("'(\r|\n)'","",$hash);
    curl_setopt($curl,CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER,$header);
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_URL$query);

    $result curl_exec($curl);

    if (
    $result == false) {
      
        
    error_log("curl_exec threw error \"" curl_error($curl) . "\" for $query");
    }


    $decoded_response json_decode$resulttrue );
    $session_url $decoded_response['data']['url'];
    $cookie_jar 'cookie.txt';
    print_r($session_url);
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_HTTPHEADERnull);             // Unset the authentication header.
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_COOKIESESSIONtrue);          // Initiate a new cookie session.
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_COOKIEJAR$cookie_jar);       // Set the cookie jar.
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_COOKIEFILE$cookie_jar);      // Set the cookie file.
    curl_setopt($curlCURLOPT_URL$session_url);            // Set the query url to the session login url.

    $result curl_exec($curl);                               // Execute the session login call.
    if ($result == false) {
        
    error_log("curl_exec threw error \"" curl_error($curl) . "\" for $query");
                                                        
    // Log an error if curl_exec fails.
    }
    echo 
    $session_url;



    print_r(str_replace("URL=/","URL=https://10.0.0.1:2083/",$result));


    curl_close($curl);

    ?>

    Never mind the above code works we can just redirect to $session_url.
