Manage Shell Access

Shell Access allows an account holder to log into the web server using SSH. You can specify what particular shell each account uses when they log in.

Shell Access provides a level of access above that of normal cPanel access and should only be given to responsible and trustworthy customers.

  1. To access the Account Functions Menu, click on Account Functions, on the main screen of your WebHost Manager interface.
  2. Click on Manage Shell Access.
  3. Click on Enable Normal Shell, Enable Jailed Shell, or Disable next to the required account. You can also click on the Jail All Users button to enable the Jail Shell on all accounts.
