I would love to be able to bookmark certain cPanel URLs (or send them in an email to other users) however because cPanel embeds a session ID in the URL, I frequently get this error when attempting to access a bookmarked URL:

enter image description here

I then have to reenter my password, and afterward I am no longer on the page I originally bookmarked. This seems to happen with phpMyAdmin URLs, AwStats URLs, and numerous other sections within cPanel.

If anyone has found a workaround for this problem, I'd love to know.

  • In the example provided, why can't you just bookmark ames.net.au:2082?

    @zigojacko He wants to go direct to certain cPanel pages, not the main page

I've had no problem doing this, providing the session variable is taken out of the bookmarked URL.

It takes me to the login page and then immediately to the page I had bookmarked.

I've frequently used it for the FTP Sessions page on a host that had a tight limit, where I often had to go in just to disconnect all the active sessions.

Your screenshot shows an AWStats URL however, which might behave differently, as it's not a core cPanel page - cPanel just links to it.
