Disabale or enable Demo mode in WHM

  • This demo assumes you’ve already logged in to WebHost Manager.
  • You have ability to turn any account in your WHM into a demo account. A demo account is commonly used as a sales tool, as it allows potential customers to login to cPanel and browse around, but restricts the user’s ability to alter files or folders.
  • Click the account functions link.
  • Then click Manage Demo Mode
  • Select myotherdomain.com as the account to convert into a demo account.
  • Then click Modify.
  • We can see here that demo mode is currently disabled for this account.
  • Click the Enable button.
  • That’s it! Demo mode has been enabled, meaning that when a user logs in to this account’s cPanel, certain functions will be disabled.
  • Click Manage Demo Mode again.
  • Select myotherdomain.com again.
  • Click Modify.
  • Then click Disable.
  • Demo mode has been turned off and the account is once again fully functional.
  • This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to setup a demo account, so you can allow your customers access to a seemingly fully functional cPanel but that won’t allow them to alter any files.
