Really? There is a security issue I should be aware of if I run cpanel on port 2082?

How do I change the port cpanel runs on?

To the best of my knowledge there is no real threat on using those ports for cPanel. I am pretty sure that they are running their own software under a different port system so that hackers can not easily hack the cPanel site. Just an EXTRA step for securing the cPanel site.

I doubt they use cpanel on their own site. There really isn't a reason to. One website can be very easily maintained with a bit of shell and FTP access.

we use a modified version of cPanel on these servers. They are a cluster of servers with a single site so there is really no need to use cPanel and use up the extra resources.

Changing default port 2086 to another

but, by the way, there is any solution;configuration to change the port of Cpanel and WHM to any other

any kiddie knows that Cpanel runs in 2086 TCP port and 2082 TCP port.
i wish to avoid this.

Thanks

They may have also just firewalled those ports off from "non-admin IPs" (i.e. nobody but senior cPanel Inc management/tech team should have a reason to login via cPanel/WHM: so why even allow them access to those ports?). It's just another layer of security - simple enough to implement yourself, but not really suitable if you are offering web hosting facilities to your customers (unless they are all on fixed IP addresses and will never need to connect to cPanel/WHM from other IP addresses).
