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
