    Hey guys, I just installed on a clean server instance, and I'm trying to get into cPanel. There's no DNS going to the box just yet, so I hit http://ip.address.dotted.quad:2086, and no dice.

    I nmaped the box, and only ports 21, 22, 80, and 443 are open.

    What went wrong, and how do I fix it?

    I see there's some RewriteRules in apache's httpd.conf, rewriting host cpanel., and a few others to http://127.0.0.1:2086, which is cute, but I don't even see a Listen directive on that port anywhere.

    Please help.

    Have you opened cPanel ports in addition to your 21, 22, 80, and 443?

    As per your URL you are trying to access, it's on 2086 (don't forget 2087, 2082 & 2083). You may need to flush your iptables until you set it up properly for constant access on those ports.

    Installing's ConfigServer Firewall (after flushing your iptables) setups all cPanel ports up neatly and easily after you've gotten access to cPanel/WHM.

    Actually, iptables is not running at all.
