[products]Getting started with CPanel

Created#
More Posted time:Jul 13, 2018 11:04 AM
Hi,


I created an ECS instance with cPanel.  I then added a security rule to allow ports 2082/2087.


There is a WHM login at http://my-ip:2087 that accepts the username / password but it says:   `Invalid Licence File`.  Some of the instructions on this page recommend running /usr/local/cpanel/cpanelctl


When I log in to through the management terminal and run this command it says:  "No licence was found for your machine (my-ip)"


There is also a CPanel login at http://my-ip:2082 that does not accept the password created during ECS setup (makes sense, need to set this up during WHM which I can't get into).


What am I missing here?  The user manual skips all this and begins at accepting the licence agreement.

Hi, you can change the password, Try to change it and check whether it works or not.

Hi marekt,
Do you have valid WHM/Cpanel License.


If yes, then connect the server using Putty (with Valid Username/Password). Normally SSH use port 22.


After entering valid IP address and Port you will see the screen like this




Enter your root username and password
Then run the same Command:  /usr/local/cpanel/cpanelctl


It will refresh your WHM/CPanel license. after that you can Login to your WHM/CPanel as normally you are doing.


Hope this will help you to access your WHM/Cpanel

HiGhulamQadir,
I am new to server issue, I was wondering why we need to purchase  cpanel and WHM license? I thought it is open source. Looking forward to hearing from you

Hi z2228391,
WHM/CPanel license is not free. You can check the price from this link


But you can use free administration Panels which are alternative to CPanel like (Webmin, Lamp, Webmin + Lamp, CentOS Web Panel, Ajenti, YunoHost, Vesta CP etc.)
