Some users asked us if it’s possible to change the default 2082/2083 cPanel port on their servers. If you are searching the internet you will see many web pages/articles that recommend you to:
Log into your server via SSH as root
Edit the file /var/cpanel/cpanel.config in your preferred text editor.
Search the line port=2082
and replace 2082 with the desired port.
Restart the cPanel service with service cpanel restart
Notice that this method doesn’t work anymore. As of writing this article – June 2017 – there is no way to change the default cPanel (and WHM) ports!
Trying to manually add the line port=xxxx line in /var/cpanel/cpanel.config will result in warnings in cPanel log file /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log:
