Is it possible to skip the Initial Setup Assistant, as it is shown when I´m logging in to WHM? The server is already setup, and Cpanel is working.

The setup shows up when logging in at xxxxx.com:2087
The setup doesn´t show up when going to xxxxx.com:2087/cpsess12345/xxxx

I´m using OVH-hosting

Hello,

We can skip few steps but can not skip all, basic configuration as its required for server or domains.
Are you getting blank page after root login? (xxxxx.com:2087/cpsess12345/xxxx)

If possible try to check cpanel logs too.

Thanks,

Hello,

Check to ensure the following file exists on the affected system:

Code:
/etc/.whostmgrft
Thank you.

Hello,

Does clearing your browser cache help solve the issue?

how do I check if that file excist or not?
You will need to access the server via SSH as root.

Thank you.

Hello,

Assuming you are logged in as root, you can create this file with the following command to avoid seeing the initial setup wizard (assuming you completed it already):

Code:
touch /etc/.whostmgrft
Thank you.
