Managing Account Bandwidth in WHM

Adjusting account bandwidth limits in WHM is very similar to the process used when editing an account in WHM. While you can adjust bandwidth limits via multiple locations, it’s usually best to use the modify account page.┬áChanging the settings and limits of a cPanel account from WHM is a simple process and only takes a few moments.

  1. With WHM open (a) type ‘list’ into the search box, this will sort the menu options for you. Then (b) find and click “List Accounts”.
    manage-bandwidth-whm-pt1
  2. Now on the “List Accounts” page, (a) enter the domain, or username, into the search box . Then (b) click “Find”.
    manage-bandwidth-whm-pt2
  3. Select the account you want to adjust by clicking the “[+]” button.
    manage-bandwidth-whm-pt3
  4. In the expanded section, find and click the button labeled: “Modify Account”.
    manage-bandwidth-whm-pt4
  5. Now on the “Modify an Account Page”, you will find ‘Monthly Bandwidth Limit’ under “Resource Limits”. Adjust this limit as required.

  6. When you finish making changes click the “Save” button, found at the page end.
    manage-bandwidth-whm-pt6
  7. Depending on the server you may see a pop-up about “Package Conflict Resolution”. If this shows up when saving, you can select “Keep this account on package {package name}”.
    manage-bandwidth-whm-pt7

    Even though the text in WHM says “(not recommended)” this option is the least destructive. The other options may change packages that other accounts use.

Enable Remote MySQL Connections in cPanel

Remote MySQL connections are disabled by default in cPanel servers because they are considered a potential security threat. Using the tools in the Web Host Manager (WHM) and the domain-level cPanel interface (usually http://domainname.com/cpanel) remote hosts can be added which the server allows to connect to the MySQL service.

Before using either of the following techniques, you will need to to open up port 3306 in your server’s firewall.

Enabling Remote MySQL in the WHM Interface

Log in to the server’s WHM interface and find the section in the left-side navigation bar labeled SQL Services. You can sort the list by typing ‘sql’ in the search box. Click on the link marked Additional MySQL Access Hosts:

WHM - Remote MySQL List

On the following page, enter one or more hosts or IP addresses in the text box (1) and click the Save button (2). If you wish to activate these settings on all user accounts see (3).

WHM - Remote MySQL page

Now that the remote connection has been activated in the WHM each domain account that wants to use the remote connection will need to activate it in their own cPanel interface.

Enabling Remote MySQL in the Domain cPanel Interface

Log in to the domain’s cPanel interface and find the section on the main page labeled Databases.

In the Databases section find the link/button labeled Remote MySQL and click on it.

cPanel - Remote MySQL list

The following page will appear in your browser. Add a hostname or IP address that you want to grant remote MySQL access to (1) and then click the Save button (2).

If a host or IP address needs to be removed from this list you can click the ‘Delete’ button next to the entry in the list.
