im using Centos 5.2 with cpanel/whm on a dedicated server. i have a couple of sites i want to host on it but after a couple of days of poking around i just can't for the life of me wrap my head around this.

is there a tutorial that will guide you step by step on setting up a website?

many thanks in advance. you have no idea how aggravating this is getting for me.

It's a simple procedure after you've done it once. In short, open WHM and do the following:

1) Main >> Packages >> Add Packages
Just fill in the form then click "Add".

2) Main >> Account Functions >> Create a New Account
Enter the domain, desired username, desired password and an email address.
Click on the package you created, then click the "Create" button at the bottom, since everything else on this form is purely optional.

Step 1 is only necessary if you have not created your packages yet. Once they are all set, you can omit step 1 and simply choose from any of your applicable packages when you create a new account.

thanks, i figure out the problem was that the hostname was being used somewhere else and i just had to delete it from there so i could use the URL.

thanks. it is pretty easy to make a site. kinda feel really dumb i was having such trouble with it.
