    I know I can add keys for users in all kinds of ways, so it's not a blocking issue or anything. But just now I wanted to try to add an ssh key for a user in CPanel and don't see this possibility anywhere.

    The user I'm trying to configure ssh keys for, is a reseller and does have shell access. But in CPanel, well maybe I'm being blind today, but I can't find this anywhere.

    So I guess the question in short is: where in CPanel do users manage their SSH keys?

    And, if I'm right about this feature missing from my CPanel interface, where can I enable it?

    Much obliged.

    Hello Mark,

    You can manage SSH keys for individual accounts by accessing cPanel and browsing to the "SSH Access" option:

    SSH Access - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    This option includes a section titled "Manage SSH Keys" that allows you to create and manage the key files.

    Thank you.

    Hey Chris, thanks for responding. The money quote is this one:

    "You may perform the following actions from cPanel's Manage SSH Keys interface ( Home >> Security >> SSH Access >> Manage SSH Keys)."

    So I guess that there is indeed a problem for me: It seems to be missing as you can see from the screenshot. And I did verify once more but the user does have (jailed) ssh access.

    Any idea what I can do about it?

    Hello,

    You can browse to "WHM >> Feature Manager", select the feature list assigned to the account, and verify the "SSH Access" feature is enabled.

    Thank you.

    Hi Michael. Yes indeed - there it was, disabled for the feature list that the package used by the reseller uses. Fixed it. Thank you!
