Shell access to your server using SSH (MacOS Terminal)

As Mac OS has a built in terminal client you can simply load this up and enter the following command ensuring to enter the cPanel username and server hostname to match your own account e.g.

ssh –p 722 [email protected]

This will then prompt for a password which will be your cPanel password and this will complete the login process.

SSH Keys are recommended if you want to restrict SSH access to users with a key rather than just the SSH password.

We have a separate guide on setting up SSH keys for access:

Setting up public/private keys on MacOS

Setting up public/private keys on Windows
