Integration of Web Presence Builder with cPanel involves the following steps:
- Install and configure Web Presence Builder 11 Standalone on a separate server.
- Configure the cPanel server to ensure it meets the hosting requirements described in the section above and in Prerequisites and Requirements.
Obtain the command-line utility called wpb_cpanel.run and run it on the cPanel server. This utility:
- Installs a cPanel plugin which operates Web Presence Builder installations by means of the API.
- Adds the Web Presence Builder option to all existing feature lists and packages.
This enables all user accounts to have access to the editor: the Web Presence Builder button becomes available in
cPanel > Home > Software/Services group.
