I have a server that uses cPanel.

There is a built-in feature with cPanel where I can access the login area by going to domain.com/cpanel.

I was wondering if there was a way to disable it or hide it. I've tried creating a cpanel directory with an index.html file.

This is assuming you're running the linux version, not the FreeBSD or windows versions (if so just let me know).

Log into your server (shell, not through whm) and open


Search for -

ServerAlias cpanel.* whm.* webmail.* webdisk.*

Change it to -

ServerAlias whm.* webmail.* webdisk.*

Then just restart apache-
