    I have created (now) 4 VPS from Atlantic.net. These VPS come with cPanel/WHM pre-installed. However, all 4 have the same problem:

    When I go to login to WHM I get the "Login successful. Redirecting" message...but it never redirects...just sits there.

    When I told Atlantic.net about this they said it was my problem -- they don't support 3rd party software, etc., etc. -- even though I'm paying them for this license -- so here I am "hat in hand".

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could do to fix this (dropping Atlantic.net and getting my own license has occurred to me, LOL!)

    Also, can I even start a support ticket with cPanel when I haven't personally purchased a license?

    Hello :)

    Are you experiencing this issue with multiple web browsers? Do you notice any error messages in the cPanel error log (/usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log)? Also, are there any firewall rules active on the server or your local computer?

    To answer your other question, yes, you can open support tickets via:

    Thank you.

    Google goes to a white screen and stays there where FF stays on the redirecting message but neither logs in. IE acts exactly like FF.

    I can login to other WHM's so I don't think it's my pc.

    The error log shows a bunch of stuff from 2012 (guess that's because it's a VPS?) and this is what is shows from today:

    **************************************************
    File /usr/local/cpanel/logs/update_analysis/2013-09-06T17:17:08Z.tar.gz has been sent successfully to updatelogdrop.cpanel.net.

    cphulkd rejected registration attempt for whostmgrd with: 500 AUTH FAILED
    **************************************************

    The last line about cphulkd is repeated a dozen times so maybe that will mean something to you.

    Thanks.

    Try stopping cphulkd to see if the issue persists:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcphulkd
    If the issue continues, you may want to try forcing a cPanel update via:

    Code:
    /scripts/upcp --force
    Also, did you check to see if any firewall rules were active on the server?

    Thank you.

    I ahve tried stopping cphulkd on the advice of someone else. That didn't work.

    I'm also running the forced update as I type (how long does that take? it's been running almost an hour...)

    How would I check for firewall rules? I've only used Webmin for that in the past and don't have a clue how to do that via SSH (Google, here I come, LOL! Maybe the forced update will fix it though.)

    Thanks for the help. I really do appreciate it.

    Feel free to open a support ticket so we can take a closer look. You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.

    Thanks so much for the help but I ended up killing the VPS after the forced update sat there doing nothing for a couple of hours. Time for a new VPS (and a new provider until Atlantic.net gets their stuff together)...so I'm trying server4you's VPS.

    FYI, installing cPanel on their lowest end VPS took only 32 minutes and 3 seconds. So much for the claims of taking several hours to install that are all over the ol' interweb, LOL!
