How to check the version of your cPanel

What is cPanel?

cPanel is a web hosting control panel that allows web hosting owners to manage their sites from a web-based user interface. cPanel gives a user-friendly visual Interface for all web hosting users that lets them manage their Linux server. The highly popular control panel also provides tools that are designed to streamline the running and maintenance of a website. cPanel's tiered structure allows for different levels of access, which means administrators and end users can control different aspects of the server and the site directly through the internet browser.

The simplest way to gain access to cPanel is by using HTTPS on port 2087 or by merely adding "--/cpanel" to the end of your hostname. (ex: www.nuagerie.com/cpanel)

Checking your version

cPanel is one of the most popular web hosting control panels available on the web. Nuagerie makes sure to always have our cPanel & WHM versions up to date, however, if you want to use a previous version or simply want to check what version your system is running on, there are several different ways to find out.

Technique # 1:

By far the easiest way to check your cPanel version is to use the WHM Dashboard for your server. If you are a Nuagerie reseller or you have purchased our WHM licenses, simply log into your WHM and inspect the top-right corner of your screen. There, you will see your server name, the version of your cPanel & WHM, and the load averages currently working on your server.

Technique # 2:

For those with experience working with Linux command lines, you can also check the version of cPanel & WHM installed by entering the 'cPanel' command into your program's terminal.

/usr/local/cPanel/cPanel-V

Technique # 3:

Another simple way of checking your version is by accessing the Version file for your server. You can see all of the files on your server by going to the Files section of your cPanel and clicking on File Manager. The file trajectory should look something like this: cat/usr/regional/cPanel/version

The cPanel Interface

One of the many reasons that cPanel is so popular is the large assortment of features availble for all users.

The File Manager Interface makes it easy to manage your files, making it easy for you to upload, create, delete, and modify files without the need for FTP or other third party applications.

The Images Interface is another appealing feature for managing images according to your requirements. cPanel makes it easy than ever to view, resize, and transform image file types directly from your web browser.

The Web Disk feature allows access to the website's files. Once you've created a web disk, you can access your server's files as easily as accessing files on the local drive of your computer. One of the most impressive features of cPanel's Web Disk interface is that you can also access your files directly from your mobile phone.

The Backup Wizard provides step-by-step instructions when creating backups of your server. cPanel makes it easy to keep your backups always up-to-date.

If you still have questions or concerns about your cPanel, make sure to contact us by opening a support ticket or by using our live chat feature.
