cPanel version 72, which we deployed to all servers about a week ago, has a couple of new features that I wanted to quickly highlight. The first of these adds the ability to setup Git repositories via Files -> Git Version Control in cPanel as seen below.
When creating a repository, you have the option to clone an existing one if desired. Once it has been created you’ll be provided with the SSH URL to access it. SSH (Shell) access will need to be enabled on the cPanel account and you’ll have to use the cPanel username and password to login.
On the topic of SSH access, a new in-browser terminal is also now available from directly within cPanel. This can be found under Advanced -> Terminal. We just activated this feature on our servers today due to a cPanel update now correctly launching these connections within CageFS. While I wouldn’t let it replace a desktop client for regular SSH access, it is certainly convenient to use on occasion since it is quickly accessible without having to do anything other than login to cPanel. SSH (Shell) access does have to be enabled on the cPanel account for the Terminal link to show up.
We hope you’re able to put these new features to good use and look forward to sharing more with you as further updates become available. Please don’t hesitate to submit a support ticket if we can be of any assistance with these features.
