When setting up cpanel, within the basic config section of setup, an ip address is required and it is not clear if this is supposed to be the public ip address of the server or the private ip address. The confusion is because the example ip address a 10.x.x.x ip address, which would suggest a private ip is needed, but it is simply not clear.

Can someone please let me know if public or private is required?

Thanks in advance.

Hello :)

Yes, you should use a public IP address unless you are specifically setting up a NAT environment.

Thank you.
