Mod Names and Title

Please refer to the cPanel Mod Sturcture for file locations below.

Below, we are going to change the names of the directories that are visible to users.

This is not required. However, as with any cPanel mod, these names will appear in the url when the mod is clicked on.

To change the directory names, follow the steps below.



In our example, we will be replacing the visable directories from the default "coffeecp_" id with a new id; "myjavahosting_".

We will also be changing the cPanel section name from "Java Tools" to "My Java Hosting"


1. SSH to your server as root


2. Change to to the paper_lantern directory at /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern/

cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern


3. Use the copy (cp) command to copy the directories with their new names

cp coffeecp_version myhosting_verion

cp coffeecp_manage myhosting_manage

cp coffeecp_jdk myhosting_jdk

cp coffeecp_mapping myhosting_mapping


4. Edit the /coffeecp_master/install.json file to reflect new ids and title

    "order" : 7,
    "name" : "My Java Hosting",  
    "type" : "group",
    "id" : "coffeecp_modplugins"
    "icon" : "version.png",
    "group_id" : "coffeecp_modplugins",
    "order" : 1,
    "name" : "Version",
    "type" : "link",
    "id" : "myhosting_version",
    "uri" : "myhosting_version/index.php"
    "icon" : "power.png",
    "group_id" : "coffeecp_modplugins",
    "order" : 2,
    "name" : "Power",
    "type" : "link",
    "id" : "myhosting_manage",
    "uri" : "myhosting_manage/index.php"
    "icon" : "mapping.png",
    "group_id" : "coffeecp_modplugins",
    "order" : 3,
    "name" : "Mappings",
    "type" : "link",
    "id" : "myhosting_mapping",
    "uri" : "myhosting_mapping/index.php"
    "icon" : "jdk.png",
    "group_id" : "coffeecp_modplugins",
    "order" : 4,
    "name" : "JDK",
    "type" : "link",
    "id" : "myhosting_jdk",
    "uri" : "myhosting_jdk/index.php"



Finally, to register the changes, we need to run the required mod commands.

As root, change to the /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern/ directory:

cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern/

Issue the following:

tar cfj coffeecp_master.tar.bz2 coffeecp_master

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/install_plugin /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern/coffeecp_master.tar.bz2


The above creates a new coffeecp_master archive and then registers it with cPanel.



Your new directory structure will now look as below:

  • /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lanterncpanel mod directory
    • coffeecp_mastermaster mod directory
      • jdk.pngjdk module icon
