cP Starter is intended for you to modify the appearance of the cPanel interface and kickstart your own custom style. It is a professional, yet minimalistic approaches that can be used as is or adapted to match your company’s branding and logo.

###Custom Style Installation### A couple things before you start. First, identify the type of role that best suits your needs in order to complete the installation. Secondly, cP Starter is compatible to cPanel & WHM 56 or later.

  1. Download and extract the files

  2. Place the extracted files in a new folder called cP_Starter_Light and upload them in the following directory: (Note: if the directory folders do not exist, create them in the right order)

    • Server:

      • /var/cpanel/customizations/styled/cP_Starter_Light/
    • Reseller:

      • /home/reseller/var/cpanel/reseller/styled/cP_Starter_Light/ (Note: reseller - represents the cPanel account's reseller's username)
    • cPanel User:

      • /home/username/var/cpanel/styled/cP_Starter_Light/ (Note: username - represents the cPanel account's username)
  3. Generate custom icons via command line: (Note: this is optional as it replaces existing icons)

    • Both Server & Reseller:
      • Log in to the server via SSH as a root or reseller user
      • Run the command line:
        • /usr/local/cpanel/bin/sprite_generator --theme paper_lantern --style cP_Starter_Light
  4. Change your style interface:

    • Server:

      • Log in to the server via SSH as the root user

  5. Change cPanel default logo to your own brand logo:

    • Both Server and Reseller:
      • Login to WHM
      • Navigate to Branding: cPanel > Branding
      • Upload your logo under Company Logo
