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 you enter the cPanel username and server hostname that match your own account e.g.

ssh –p 722

This will then prompt for a password which will be your cPanel password - enter this to 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
