Those who are behind strict corporate firewalls might not be able to access their web host-provided cPanel.
The solution is to install cPanel Proxy on a sub-domain (like http://cpanel.yoursite.com). cPanel Proxy is a small PHP script that gives access to your cPanel at port 80 by acting like a proxy.
Its installation is as simple as uploading the files to a sub-domain. Below are the steps to set it up:
- Download the latest version (current: 0.4.1) from here and extract the contents to your local disk.
- Create a sub-domain. Now, for this you will need to have access to cPanel. So create this when you are at your home or any other place other than the restrictive firewall location.
- Upload all the files to the root directory of your sub-domain. Ex.: public_html/cpanel Thatâ€™s it! Now you should be able to access the cPanel at your sub-domain.
This also works for your webdisk and webmail too.
