Hello,

Believe or not, I couldn't find the answer on the docs nor on the forum...:rolleyes:

I have hired a technician to migrate my shop to my new VPS.

Therefore I need to create him an access on my CPanel for this specific account, with SSH access.

How do I do this ?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi!
So you want to create a cPanel user for a cPanel account from the terminal?
Or do you want to give SSH/terminal access to a specific cPanel user?

I am not quite sure, I need to create an access to one of my Cpanel account, with SSH access.
To Create a cPanel user with SSH/Terminal access, Go to create account and select Shell Access in Creation. If account is already created, search WHM for "Manage Shell Access" and enable Jailed SSH or Normal SSH as per requirement.
