Ability to disable WHM Terminal feature

As a web hosting provider, I would like to be able to disable the WHM terminal, as I limit shell access for my hosting customers to help prevent confusion and mistakes from customers who are not familiar with the command line.

This has been added as of version 72.0.5. You can see the full details in the 72 documentation.

The in-browser terminal application

cPanel & WHM's new in-browser terminal application provides direct command-line access within a cPanel & WHM session. This faster and easier successor replaces the Java-powered SSHTerm application that we removed in cPanel & WHM Version 11.50.
  • WHM users can access this feature in WHM's Terminal interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Terminal).
  • cPanel users can access this feature in cPanel's Terminal interface (cPanel >> Home >> Advanced >> Terminal).
  • Server administrators can enable the terminal application for cPanel users with the SSH Access & Terminal setting in WHM's Feature Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Packages >> Feature Manager).
  • Server administrators can create the /var/cpanel/disable_whm_terminal_ui touch file to disable the terminal application for WHM users. This includes both resellers with root access and the root user. The system does not create this file by default.
