I am trying to enable Shell Exec () for software that I am using on my site but when I go to the PHP.ini file in WHM or through cPanel I don't find it by the disable_functions section where its supposed to be, how can I enable this option ? either through CLI or WHM/cPanel ?

Assuming that you don't have access to WHM and just have a hosting account, this is likely disabled by your host at the server level as it can pose a security issue, in which case you won't be able to enable it yourself and will need to speak to them about it

Go to WHM -> Software -> MultiPHP INI Editor,
there select Editor Mode, then select PHP version you want to change, it opens the config file for that version, then find the disable_functions line, remove shell_exec from that line and click Save.

Unfortunately its not located there somehow. Ill post a screen shot.

Go to WHM -> Software -> MultiPHP INI Editor,
there select Editor Mode, then select PHP version you want to change, it opens the config file for that version, then find the disable_functions line, remove shell_exec from that line and click Save.
