    Hello there!

    I am currently faced with a rather large problem. What I am doing is creating a dashboard for my website. This dashboard will have basically the same functionality as WHMCS; clients will be able to click a button to log into their cPanel account.

    Is there a database, that I could access, that would tell or show me all of my clients credentials? So I can then create a script which will place a button on their page and allow them to log into their cPanel just from a click of a button?

    Psst.. There must be a database otherwise the 'Login to cPanel' form which you are told to complete when you go to OR (2083 for cPanel & 2087 for WHM).

    - 'Login to cPanel' picture (

    Thank you, all help is appreciated.

    Hello :)

    The passwords are stored on the filesystem as is standard on Linux based distributions. However, we do offer a guide you can follow at:

    Guide to API Authentication - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

    There's also a thread here that shows an example of how it's done for email accounts in a PHP script:

    php code to login to webmail

    Thank you.
