Upgrading MySQL or MariaDB

cPanel & WHM Version 80 will not support MySQL 5.5, and updates to cPanel & WHM Version 80 will be blocked for any server still running MySQL 5.5.

Introducing cPanel Analytics

As a part of an ongoing initiative to improve user experience in our product, in cPanel & WHM Version 78 we introduced cPanel Analytics.

Reseller’s Guide to ACLs and API Tokens

Several versions ago, we made some monumental changes to the way that the ACLs (access control lists) and APIs behave and the level of access they grant. These improvements allow webhosts to provide more access to resellers while maintaining security for root users and server owners. We want to take this opportunity to highlight the numerous changes that these updates bring. New Reseller Privileges Granted If you are a webhosting provider, you likely sell hosting …
