@forums no, because cPanel is built for shared hosting services. NodeBB doesn't work with those services.
We are working on making installs easier, but it won't involve cPanel.
We maintain a public read-only API on the client-side. NodeBB itself uses it to render pages. Give it a shot here, for this page: https://community.nodebb.org/api/topic/1793/is-there-any-python-api-for-nodebb
/api to all pages will show the corresponding API route for it.
