    Dear Support,

    I've installed WHM/CPanel on my VPS ip address x.x.x.x. The initial installations for both WHM and CPanel are completed. But I am facing some issues:

    Is it possible to configure in the CPanel/WHM panel to set the proxy/virtualhost so that the following can be achieved:
    Code:
    - [URL]https://x.x.x.x:2087[/URL] accessed by whm.domain.net
    - [URL]https://x.x.x.x:2083[/URL] accessed by cpanel.domain.net
    - [URL]http://www.domain.net/wp[/URL] accessed by hosting.domain.net
    
    
    Thank you.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Gabriel

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the great help.

    (1) https://x.x.x.x:2087 accessed by whm.domain.net
    (2) https://x.x.x.x:2083 accessed by cpanel.domain.net
    (3) http://www.domain.net/wp accessed by hosting.domain.net

    (1) and (2) are working now as per your advice. But I am still trying to solve the (3).

    For (3), http://www.domain.net/wp is actually hosted on wordpress multi site. I wanted to be able to access http://www.domain.net/hosting/ by using the url hosting.domain.net.

    I tried the following:
    a) create a CNAME record of hosting.domain.net pointing to the same server ip x.x.x.x --> this works as hosting.domain.net was able to be resolved to the server ip x.x.x.x when I ping it.
    b) tried to configure with "Redirect" and also "Subdomains" in CPanel but it didn't work. When I visit hosting.domain.net I get a redirect to the URL domain.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi.

    I tried to bypass the wordpress site by creating a dummy folder and html page inthe Document Root. Similarly I configured Subdomains to point hosting.domain.net to public_html/dummyfolder. I was redirected to the URL domain.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi again...

    I really need help on solving this.... :S

    Hello :)

    Ensure you use "A" records for IP addresses and CNAME entries for actual hostnames when modifying DNS records. Could you not simply create "hosting.domain.net" as a subdomain on the "domain.net" account and configure the document root accordingly?

    Thank you.
