    I thought it was /var/cpanel/packages/ but that redirects to /home/cpanel and has nothing.

    I want to add several packages by uploading to them.

    Hello,

    On my machine, /var/cpanel/packages does contain the packages on the server:

    root@host [/var/cpanel]# ls -ld packages
    drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Jun 22 11:53 packages/

    root@host [/var/cpanel]# ls -lah packages
    total 16K
    drwx------ 2 root root 4.0K Jun 22 11:53 ./
    drwx--x--x 66 root root 4.0K Jun 22 12:53 ../
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 159 Jun 22 11:53 dnsonly
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 203 Jun 21 11:09 noemail

    Has someone created a symlink of /var/cpanel on the machine in question to /home/cpanel for some reason?

    My machine is using 11.30.0.32

    I found it, it is /var/cpanel/packages I was just doing /var/local/cpanel/ and getting redirected.

    My fault.
