    I'm rather new to cPanel too, however, sounds like you just want normal ssh access...right? Do you have root or other shell access to the server?

    How could I forget this option :eek: but I don't think it is the tool for beginners. Correct me if I am wrong.

    It's no more dangerous than using the root shell via SSH ;)
