    Hello friends

    I just got a VPS because my site was overloading a server on shared hosting.

    so I dont know anything about VPS

    I was playing around and reading some threads in here

    I have a domain from 1&1 and created 2 subdomains in there for the VPS
    ns1.5lejna.net
    and ns2.5lejna.net

    and done everything

    ----------------------------

    So if I want to open my website now www.5lejna.net , What should I do ? how can I open the FTP ? and uploading my forum

    I tried the root password doesnt work , I tried going to www.5lejna.net/cpanel with the root and root password , it doesnt work

    ---------------------------

    and earlier i made an account in cPanel then tried connecting to ftp with the account i've made , it connected with no problems and www.5lejna.com/cpanel worked too

    then i terminated all the account and tried again , but now its notworking

    i create the account but when i try to connect ftp or 5lejna.net/cpanel , it doesnt work

    Friendly moderator note

    I have merged all of the threads you have started into a single thread, since the content is essentially the same. I did not delete any of your posts. I merely consolidated all three of your posts into a single thread. Please stop starting new threads. A single thread will suffice for the questions you have asked.

    Running a VPS is different from running a site on a shared hosting server. Since you have your own VPS, you have access to the WebHost Manager, which controls server functions. I recommend that you review the WHM documentation here, if you have not done so already:

    WHM User Guide

    Log into the WHM as root with the server's root password. Once you have logged into the WHM, you will need to create a cPanel account, if you have not already done so. The following sections of the documentation explain this:

    Account Functions
    Create a New Account

    The cPanel account username and password are what you will use to upload your site's content. Once you log in via FTP, change to the public_html directory, and upload your files.

    I also recommend that you review the documentation for the cPanel interface, which is used to manage your individual site's account. Its documentation is available here:

    cPanel User Guide

    Just to add to cPanelJared's comments, documentation is your friend. 1&1 hosting FAQ sections leave a bit to be desired but you might find something useful here.
    /http://faq.1and1.com/websites/access/ftp/index.html

    If you're unsure of how to manage your shiney new server, your first stop might be with your host, 1&1. I'm sure they can help.

    GL!
