    i just got a new server with WHM and cpanel. i setup the server with the host name web.hostname.com and set nameserver with the same domain and made a new user in cpanel with the domain. but for some reason i can not get rid of the default cpanel Success screen when loading http://web.hostname.com can some one please tell how to fix this or were to locate the public_html

    i relized i sound like an idiot

    Everything works perfectley with all my domains on the box. everything seems be be setup correctley, except that http://web.mydomain.com points to the default cpanel install

    I don't think you can have your hostname as the domain for an account, because the hostname points to the actual server's IP. I could be wrong, but this would be my best guess.

    onezime is correct. Change the name of your account to domain.com instead.
