    After a fresh installation of WHM/Cpanel you would need to login to WHM as root, not Cpanel, to perform the initial configuration.

    You can login to WHM at

    Once you have done that you can then, through WHM, create Cpanel accounts which you could then login to and administer.

    Alternatively if it is the case that you have merely acquired a new Cpanel account from a hosting company, please contact them for advise on how to login to your new Cpanel account.
