Database Mapping
Prior to cPanel & WHM 11.28, databases and database users were prefixed with the database owner’s cPanel user name. The latest version of cPanel & WHM allows system administrators to disable this naming convention, providing greater flexibility to you and your clients. This change:

  • Simplifies migration from other control panels
  • Improves use of remote database servers
  • Lays a foundation for future improvements to database service enhancements.

Resource Locking for Web Disk
cPanel & WHM 11.28 now provides resource locking support for the web disk (WebDAV) feature. This means we support more WebDAV clients. Now, you can choose the client that’s right for you, while preventing data loss by using a locking-compatible client.

Redesigned WHM interfaces
We have given a facelift to a number of WHM interfaces. The updated interfaces include:

  • Tweak Settings
  • Exim Configuration Editor
  • Basic cPanel/WHM Setup

Each of these interfaces now features tabs that divide settings into categories, warnings when invalid data is entered, and a search field to make finding items in the lists a snap.
