How to enable Terminal for Users?
« on: August 13, 2021, 05:26:28 PM »
1. How to enable Terminal for Users?
2. Why File Manager not use same CSS style? Dashboard has nice CSS, while File Manager not.
3. Why Dashboard use "-" for Expand and "+" for Minimize while other Page use "+" for Expand and "-" for Minimize?

I see CWP is very good product in Functionality but very bad in UI design (some UI was good, but not consistency on other page).

browse to on your CWP server this link:  admin/index.php?module=list_accounts

Or click on User Accounts > List Accounts

Click on settings of the account you want to give shell / terminal access to, this will take you to  "Account Edit" settings.

On the very bottom there is the option for shell access. Click to select it then click save.

See this CWP instruction video: https://youtu.be/oOomaRc7n9c

using "admin/index.php?module=chshell" you can manage the shell access parameters.

I'm not asking SHELL access, instead Terminal feature like CWP Admin has.
If Client has Terminal then Client can access ssh directly using browser.

NB: I try to upload Image but this forum does not have Image Attachment (when Click on Image then only show the [IMG] tag).

I see this topic wasn't ended properly. For anyone having this issue, CWP does not have this feature as it's not exactly a beginner friendly panel. You should however download the application called PuTTY on your computer then log in with your CWP panel credentials to access SSH via the PuTTY terminal. Works for both user and root accounts.

If it fails connection, there's probably an issue with the port no. Usually its port 22 but your config could have been on different port. Search for your sshd status directly from logging in through your VPS via VNC or any other method. It should show you the port number being used.

Since the CWPpro Terminal is so slow & buggy as to be worthless, I wouldn't want to foist it on my users anyway. And only a couple of my clients are trusted to have shell access anyway (esp. the 1:1 VM that I run like a VPS).

So yes, go with PuTTY on Windows or a terminal on Linux or Mac. Don't try to do everything within the web browser. Or you could point users to a Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/secure-shell/iodihamcpbpeioajjeobimgagajmlibd
