How do I disable/enable WHM access from the command line ?

If you wish to disable access to WHM for all users, block incoming traffic on port 2086 and 2087 (this will lock you out as well).

You can also use a firewall to allow access to those ports for specific IP addresses only.

You cannot turn an account into a reseller account (grant WHM access) from the command line. However, you can use the XML API to automate this process. See for more information.

You cannot shut down WHM, as the WHM services are used to ensure the server stays functioning.
